-etching creme (3 oz)
-glass to be etched
-inverted decal sticker
-kitchen sink with sprayer
1) decided on a design, my dad has a big beard, so I decided to make a decal with a big beard and his name above looking like a kings crown. Did some google image searching, found the beard image. Used MS-paint to edit picture, used MS-publisher to add Word-Art. exported as BMP
2) Sent to my plotter/cutter. Made inverted decals, that is material removed where I want the glass to be etched.
3) cleaned glasses with alcohol and a paper towel
4) applied decal
5) applied etching cream with q-tip (see my layer thickness in attached pictures), swirling, dabbing, trying to keep cream evenly covered, swirl and dab, wait 5 min, swirl and dab again (moving cream around for even random coverage). Wait 5 min, swirl and dab, apply a little more creme maybe 25% as much as the first time to keep cream wet. (total 15 min)
6) wash off cream with medium pressure cold water kitchen sprayer, dry glass with paper towel, push on edges of decal to ensure none came up and would allow cream beneath it.
7) Coating 2, same process and length as first coat: (15 min total)
8) wash off cream with medium pressure cold water kitchen sprayer, dry glass with paper towel, remove decal with fingernails. wipe down with alcohol on a paper towel.
--- see pictures, I think this came out great. crisp edges, even etching, very impressed!
My frames are getting a bit scraped! I'll need new glasses soon, but haven't had time to do that, and the coating was bubbled up so that it was like looking through a fog! So I tried this internet fix!
AND IT WORKED!
--->>> I had to dab a thick coat on with a Q-Tip, (my coatings are only on one side of the lens)
--->>> I would leave it for 15-30 minutes, then gently rinse away and dry with a cloth.
--->>> I had to do this about 3 to 4 times... some of the coating would still remain, but it gradually all came off.
This stuff seems to leave the actual PLASTIC lenses untouched.
If you want to attempt this, just gently dab some on with a Q-tip, let it sit for 20-30 minutes, and rinse with warm water. Do not rub them as it may hurt the lenses that way.
