  • Step 1

    gather all ur materials....n decide upon a design u want to etch

    trace it on the glass

  • Step 2

    TIP: tracing on the glass can b easily done by putting the drawing underneath the glass n den tracing it directly on d glass

    Step 3

    now take ur thin paint brush n make outline wid the black paint on ur drawing....

    just like in the picture...

  • Step 4

    once dis is done u can paint the negative area wid ur thick paint brush.

    allow it to dry.

  • Step 5

    wen d paint has dried.. cover the same side wid foil...

    i like the textured or crumbly foil instead of neat n plain foil...

  • Step 6

    now turn it around and voila!!!

    uve got urself a etched mirror!!

    waiting to see ur versions :)

This seems like a great project, however, the instructions for it are horridous! If you want to write clearly written instructions, I would advise not writing them in illegible webspeak. It's a bit annoying, and confusing.
