Clean the surface of the glass

First of all, the glass must be made perfectly clean. You need appropriate materials and cleaning agents. See to that you really remove all dirt, dust, and fingerprints from the items to serious.

Apply painters tape

Now, you would have to muster a piece of the painters tape on the glass to serious. So you cover the area, which must not be scratched, firstly. In addition, you can determine precisely the area in which the inscription, or initials will be, what you want engraved on the glass. Usually, the best effect is produced when you opt for the upper third of the object. You can select as well anywhere else.

See to that the painters tape was stuck just

Round and oval-shaped glass objects, one often has the problem that the band is not perfectly straight. There are many wrinkles in this. This not quite straight is also the bottom line. This is bad for the result but later, because it will be not very straight and precise. Ensure that the painters tape around the area to serious has been smoothed around real good. When you engrave a piece of glass that is smooth, you of course do not have this problem.

Attach the letters

Now we come to the next stage of the process, which is probably no less tricky. You need to install the letters slightly under the edge of the tape. Try to pinpoint the position of the letters and to avoid slipping.

Be very patient while you perform these actions. Attaching the letters is the most difficult in the entire process for most people. It is normal, you may have some problems. If you but take enough time so that the painters tape is straight and smooth, then the result will be worth really.

So Center the word

So the word or initials are exactly centered, you should start with the positioning of the Middle letters. Once you have determined exactly the Center, you can easier distribute the others.

Now, you should attach below and laterally by the letter of painters tape. You should pay special attention also at this step of the glass engraving. The painters tape should have the same distance from the letters from all sides. Once again what we have said of the Strip above the letter applies: you take time to customize everything really well. Only in this way, you would achieve results which would satisfy you.

No overly large areas at once!

It is important that you can engrave not to large areas at once on the glass. For this reason, it is important that the letters close together. In this technique, which today is the speech, everything works fine. Otherwise you would have to let simply engrave your glass.

Unfortunately, the results in places where there were crystals, will be rather odd. With an another bud, you can remove all Crystal pieces from the area to be machined.

About after two or three minutes you should stick the ATZ-paste layer and smooth around them. To avoid bladder and crystals. As we just said, they should not allow it to spoil the good results.

Remove the ATZ paste

Now you can remove the ATZ paste. This take off your gloves, protective clothing and glasses definitely. Depending on what a sink you have, you can implement the wash there. See to that the surface is not scratched and corrupted.
