Etching refers to the technique of creating art on the surface of glass
by applying acidic, caustic, or abrasive substances.

Walker TexturesTM acid-etched glass products offer a wealth of opportunities to architects, interior designers and decorators. The consistent quality, durability and rich look of Textures products is unmatched. Walker TexturesTM glass creates a translucent satin appearance which obscures view while maintaining a high level of light transmittance.

Acid etching, also known as 'French Embossing' is a process invented in the Victorian era. It gives a frosted, etched finish in delicate tones of white and diffused shades and is capable of producing very intricate patterns.

History of Acid Etch Glass

In the1860's acid etching and brilliant cutting started to be done on a semi industrial scale for the burgeoning house market. The invention of the large rotating stone wheel for the technique of 'brilliant cut' glass bore fruit in the very elaborate panels mostly seen in pubs. In the late 1870's craftsmen invented means of imitating acid etching more cheaply with sandblasting.
