Sandblasting erodes the surface of the glass through the use of abrasive grit propelled in a jet of compressed air. This can be used to obscure the glass or, where desired, designs can be introduced by masking off sections.  Deep etching uses this erosive jet to carve the glass; the more passes over an exposed area the deeper the cut.

Whether used to apply a graphic element or create a detailed illustration this technique can be utilised for doors panels, partitions, and signage or once back painted, for wall cladding and splash backs.
