Etching dichroic glass
Here's a handy tip for etching dichroic glass. What's
best is that no special equipment is needed, just a simple Sharpie
brand felt tip pen and some etching cream.
Start by drawing onto the dichroic glass with a black Sharpie
pen. Whatever you cover with the pen will remain after the
etching process, so just cover those parts of the dichroic you'd
like to keep.
Once the Sharpie dries, brush on Armour Etch or a similar
etching cream. A thin coat is all you need. It will
dissolve the dichro fairly quickly, so watch it carefully.
After a few moments rinse the dichroic glass in water, then dry it
well. Cap with clear and you're ready to fire.
