Sanding and etching are techniques that can be used for both classical and modern decorations. The images are created by blasting very fine sand onto the glass to etch its surface. The blast is lighter when sanding and more powerful when etching.
One can thus write text, draw logos, decorate shop windows and panes in display furniture doors and bookcases as well as in kitchen units with glass doors. In recent years this technique has been popular for decorating glass doors, both sliding and hinged.
