Another question :? I have looked all over the internet and purchased a book on Glass etching but I still have two questions.

What are the eleven steps of glass etching? The flyer with the Etch Bath product has 14 steps. Most projects listed in my book (Etching Glass - the weekend crafter) have 5 steps.

What is velvet etching? again could not find the answer.

Thanks in advance

I am just reading the honor and I am noticing an issue, I know of three glass etching methods: dry, wet, and chemical. They all have some different "steps."

Without knowing the 14 steps you are looking at or what the writers wanted my suspision is that the 11 steps are the equal to the 14 just that certian ones exist in combination. To be sure, the steps are start to finish - glass selection, glass preparation, pattern preparation, pattern application, etching, finishing. These being fully vague are not enough to qualify the full process to each are the steps needed.

I am also disturbed that this honor does not have a requirement for knowledge of safety precautions in handling glass and in etching application. Glass being somewhat hazardous to handle, especially unframed glass, and the etching processes all carrying some risk to injury whether from debris of blasting or burns of chemical contact.

Happy etching,

My club is doing this honor right now. Velvet etching is when you just put the etching cream on the surface without a stencil.

The 14 steps I would have to get back to you on. The director found a couple of places with rules and gave us the consistent rules which came out to something like between 11 and 13. Anyway, they are in my folder.

The honor is really relaxing too. At least for the teens.

There is a product called Etching Bath where you dip the glass in it. Would that be velvet etching? It makes the whole surface cloudy or opaque.

Thanks so much for the help.

That sounds the same to me. Our director is teaching the class, so I got the definition from her.

I'm glad to help in any way. :)

I had wanted to do that honor at Oshkosh, but they were full. We were told that we could not sign up in advance (before camporee) for any of the honors, but it turns out that everyone else had done that..... :cry:
