Etching refers to the technique of creating art on the surface of glass by applying acidic, caustic, or abrasive substances. Traditionally this is done after the glass is blown or cast, although mold-etching has replaced some forms of surface etching. The removal of minute amounts of glass causes the characteristic rough surface and translucent quality of frosted glass.
Etched/Sandblasted glass can be used to great effect and be practical as well. It heavily obscures the pane whilst allowing lots of light to pass through. We are only limited by our imagination and a world of ideas and possibilities await…

Glass attracts water because of polar hydrogen bonding with water molecules.
Hydrophobic treatment creates an invisible layer of protection for your glass, the hydrophobic liquid infiltrates the pores of the material to form a powerful bond with the glass which produces a molecular layer that water will not bond with – Basically keeps the glass cleaner for longer.
