Tile etching (joining the cool kids)


4” dal tile from Home Depot. Engraved then covered with speedball No. 3400 Black water soluble ink, allowed to sit for about a minute then wiped off. Seems to be indelible now even with wiping with damp towels. Interesting.

The overall look is a bit like watercolor (go figure), I’m pleased.

Etching Tile

You could make a nice hand-painted watercolor backsplash…circa Jurassic Park.

Kewl! :sunglasses:


What were your settings when doing the etching (if ya don’t mind…)


Lots of discussion of settings in the non-“made on a glowforge” thread here:

In general, the powers that be would prefer that we don’t talk about non-pg settings in this category.


Mucho bueno - Thx!
