What is Acid Etching?
Acid etching is often called embossing within the profession. This involves mostly using hydrofluoric acid, one of minority acids which will rapidly wear away glass. This acid is made by heating fluorspar (calcium fluoride) with sulphuric acid. The gas is condensed in water. The process was initially discovered by a Swedish chemist in 1771.
From the 1860s acid etching and brilliant cutting were extensively utilised for business promotion. Store fascias, advertising boards as well as trades person's vans were fitted with enhanced plate glass signs. The use of glass was so widespread that sign writers quickly adopted the craft of acid etching. It became a crucial addition to their profession.
