Double Etched Glass

We here are Knowsley Art Glass are often questioned about Acid Etched Glass, although this is something we can offer, it can be a dangerous procedure and a very costly one, Ron Kett, the founder of Art Glass has developed a technique that imitaes the Acid Etched look, but is more cost effective, we call this Double Etched Glass. These designs are etched with two grades of etching! The background being sandblasted with aluminium oxide and the design is etched with a different grade of aluminium oxide. leaving the impression of the design but also gives the total obscurity where required. This type of etched glass is popular within front doors of terrace houses and bathrooms for that extra bit of privacy.
We also have a bespoke service to offer,if you have any inqueries please email us at-

Acid Etched

Though all the products displayed on this page are Double
Etched- a technique we have developed here ourselves at
Art Glass by firing enamel onto the glass at 570°C,
which is ultra violet stable. We created this technique
due to the fact the Traditional Acid Etched technique
is detrimental to peoples health. The image depicting
the vase to your left is a previous job of ours made
using the Traditional Acid Etched technique, we do
offer this service still.
All quotes are price on application.
