Frosted glass was earlier used in offices, restaurants and big buildings. However, its use has transcended to windows used in dining rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms. Its purpose is simple: to obscure visibility to allow only diffused light to pass through during the day and in the night time. You can go for the ready-made frosted glass to cover windows or follow a few simple steps to frost regular glass in your home.
There are two ways you can follow to produce frosted or etched glass: through sandblasting or acid etching. The process of acid etching is carried out by using a mask to create intricate patterns, designs, paints, and lettering. Sandblasting can be done by hand or through a machine. This procedure involves blasting sand particles on to the glass. This results in erosion on the surface which removes small particles from it. This further results in the development of the rough, translucent surface which is called frosted glass.
