Etched glass, otherwise know as frosted glass, satin glass, obscure glass, acid etched glass or sandblasted glass is the process of obscuring clear glass, but allowing some areas clear, creating a decorative design onto the glass.
Creating art on the surface of the glass is a traditional technique, and here at Art Glass we do not use any plastic transfers as other companies do.
Our decorative glass workshop creates various etched glass panel designs, some of these are our standard etched victorian designs, these glass designs are regularly applied to glass stock sheets, so when a customer approaches us looking for some cheap and cheerful glass we are able to take the etched glass stock sheet out of the glass rack, cut the etched glass panel to the customer sizes, toughened the etched glass so it's ready to send out to the customer.

Our Process? All our etched glass is made here in our glass workshop, and we send it out to different glass companies across the UK.
Our process etched glass making process is done with screen printing, applying the design to the glass, then put through a sanblasting machine. We then remove the design screen printed onto the glass, having the final result of the design etched onto the surface of the glass.
Satin Glass/Acid Etched Glass/Double Etched Glass
We also have a double etched glass range, similar to satin glass but most of our customers mistake it for the technique of acid etched glass, a traditional method of creating obscured glass.

We again have standard designs in our double etched glass, for malton doors, and as repeat etched glass patterns. You can find these designs and prices here.
Using our double etched glass technique, this particular glass is perfect for rooms that require complete obscurity, leaving no clear bits in the etched glass.
This is perfect for bathrooms, and we have even done bespoke jobs previously, especially for bathrooms, and shower rooms like the one to the left.
