Good typefaces are art — fabulous, ready-made graphic art at your fingertips.
Etching on glass is one of my favorite ways to showcase beautiful type. It may seem daunting to think of burning graphics onto glass, but you’ll be surprised at how easy it is!
What you’ll need:
- Frisket film or adhesive stencil vinyl
- Latex gloves
- Small paintbrush
- Craft knife
- Self-healing cutting mat
- Glass-etching cream (Armor Etch or Martha Stewart Glass Etching Cream)
- Wet paper towel
- Typeface (We used Coquette by Mark Simonson)
