Amazing work, can I send you my window and you etch something cool into it? Anyways, I say dont paint it, it looks awesome as it is, almost makes the window look like its made out of ice with the blue light reflecting off it. Really good work, you should make a faq!

Nice, and a steady hand.

It can also be achieved by using etching acid, in about 15 minutes (after the pattern is made and tacked on). Such acid can be found at craft shops. Used it for etching glassware, but it can be used on acrylic, too.

Added benefit of acid: no risk of cracking.

The uv paint i plan on using is 100% transparent...untill the UV lights hit it...then it mathes the UV water lines to a tee.
