Make your own etch

First you'll need some window frosting plastic, I got the Fablon plus stuff from B&Q



Print up your design and a mirror image of it too

Stick your design to the paper side of the frosted plastic with pritt stick



Nows the tricky part, you'll need a steady hand and a sharp scalpel



Stick your design onto another printout of your design with the plastic side down using pritt stick again. This will make sure your design is all lined up properly and it will help when it comes to applying it.



Peel off all the backing paper from your design, now you're ready to apply the etch to your window.



Tape a mirror image of your design on the outside of your window, this will help you line the etch up.

Apply the etch and rub it down well before removing the paper backing. Then you're done...







I'm looking for some more opaque window frosting at the moment because its still a little too see through
