Diamond Etched Mirrors

Using a diamond point to etch glass is simple, ancient and requires no special equipment. When you etch the back of the glass and then mirror over the lines, the design sparkles in the reflected light. A single line has more sparkle than a shaded or complex line.

There are several ways you can create a diamond etched image:

  • Scribe the glass free-hand
  • Draw the design with a magic marker and scribe over it
  • Mask the glass and scribe inside the open areas
  • See our page on masking glass for tips on reversing a design.


Please Remember:

  • Every scratch is permanent - it can not be polished out by hand.
  • You must reverse your design - or it will be backwards when you turn the glass over (a/k/a mirror writing).
