DVD #1: Surface Etching Techniques


Video #1: Surface Etching Techniques  

Surface etching is the easiest abrasive etching technique to learn and the fastest to produce finished etchings on glass. It is much faster than etching with etching creme and produces more consistent results without streaks and splotches. There are, however, many things to learn if you want to get it right. This video shows you everything you need to know to do surface etching, including equipment and supplies necessary, how to locate and prepare designs, applying and cutting resist, blasting the glass and finishing. There are also sections on using pre-cut resists, on-site etching techniques and safety considerations.

This is where to start if you don't know anything about abrasive (sandblast) etching, for a refresher or for helping train employees - even friends! It starts with a basic explanation of what abrasive etching is and goes on to present several projects. Simple projects are explained and demonstrated first, then more complex projects. You can follow along with the tape and produce the same projects by using the patterns supplied on CD. By the time you finish the DVDs and projects, you will be well on your way to becoming a glass etching expert!

The instructional portion of the DVD is 1 hour, 27 minutes long and comes with 4 CD patterns for the projects shown on the DVD. All patterns shown on the video are available as pre-cut stencils. The DVDs also feature over 20 minutes of new information, plus much more.

In addition, glass etching equipment is explained and materials required for etching are introduced. This DVD version also has an overview of new equipment available since the original tape was created, an introduction to Aliento Glass School, a video gallery with 40 beautiful pieces of etched glass.

Bonus value!
When you order any DVD or combination of DVDs, you also receive, at NO EXTRA COST, a CD of 60 different etching patterns for etching, carving and shading plus a catalog of available etching supplies. The patterns and catalog are in PDF (Adobe Acrobat format), so you can print these patterns in any size your printer supports. For large patterns, your printer can print several smaller pages that can be taped together. Note: Patterns are for your personal use. Commercial use requires special arrangements. Limit one CD per customer.
