Engraving/Etching Glass

Using the Basic to Engrave/Etch glass. Does a good job however there exist a layer of fragile glass that breaks off in the engraving area on every portion of the design. Any way to avoid this? Don’t want glass particulates coming loose.

Mine did that too. We don’t actually engrave the glass, we are creating tiny surface fractures that creates a frosted look…but if you hit it too hard, they can pop off. (I wasn’t real fond of the effect either, so I switched back to etching cream for things that I was going to be shaking over open pots…like spice jars.)

Maybe someone else has figured out how to do it without the popoffs… lower power? Higher speed?
