-inverted decal sticker

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!
This is important -- I did not scrub the cream around after I put it on the lenses. The stuff feels gritty and I think it could easily scratch the plastic lenses.
Color me happy. I had so many scratches in the coating that driving at night was a challenge (was like looking through a camera star filter). Now my glasses are almost like new again!
Noticed that my eye glasses seemed dirty, and could not get them clean.
Went to the Optical Store and they told me that the protective / reflective coating was breaking down.
They couldn't fix them, but would order new lenses for $250.
I had heard about Armour Etch removing the coatings on PLASTIC lenses, so I tried it. (DO NOT USE OF GLASS LENSES)
After applying and letting sit for a couple minutes, the coatings just slid off when I rinsed them under water.
If you've got crappy hazed glasses, you should try this-
for the price, what do you have to lose.
