Library Journal Review

Glass etching can be a difficult craft, sometimes involving dangerous chemicals or high-speed engravers. This is a guide by professional glass-etching instructors for doing abrasive etching, a process similar to sandblasting, or using etching cream, a safe, inexpensive chemical compound. Step-by-step instructions are given for techniques, and a chapter on equipment and safety is included. Color photographs of professional artists' works are interspersed throughout the text as examples. This is intended for professionals and is suitable for larger crafts collections.
