Default glass etching

go to your local craft store and get Armour Etch, Glass Etching Cream ,buy a small stencil, clean your window, blue tape the stencil down flat, then follow the directions on the bottle. Remember its acid and its permanent, don't get it on your paint job. wear rubber gloves it takes 60 seconds, then rinse off with water. I didn't want it big , still have to look thru the glass

yep, lay ur tape down on the glass first ,find a patten (easy one) and trace on the tape ,cut out the pieces that are going to be etch ,make sure that edges are press down (acid will flow under)do an easy patten,not a very fine detail work. the acid is foamy and brush it up and down. take ur time, lots of time and warm day. practice on a glass u don't want.
