Etched glass, otherwise know as frosted glass or sandblasted glass is the process of obscuring clear glass, but allowing some areas clear, creating a decorative design into the glass.
Creating art on the surace of the glass is a treaditional technique, and here at Art Glass we do not use any plastic transfers as other companies do.
Our previous jobs involing etched glass is emense, not only have we created designs specific to customers tastes. But we also restore orginal glass features.
Though if this is not in some customers price range we created standard designs that we have stocked, and we cut to your sizes, below you will see four examples of our standard repeat pattern etched glass designs, from £31.07 +VAT per panel.

Our other range of cost effective standard etched glass designs are ideal for two panel, otherwise known as Malton doors, four of our popular designs are displayed below, prices from £60.50+VAT per panel. If you hover over the image with the mouse you can see the detail of the designs.
If you're looking for something a less distinct, we offer a range of borders that can be applied to the glass.
Etched glass can be used in many different ways, one of the most popular is etched glass house numbers.
We can create these specificly to your ideas, either with plain borders, some of our decorative borders, or no borders at all.

Our Process? All our etched glass is made here in our workshop, and we send it out to different glass companies across the UK.
Our 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.
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.
