Frosted and 2D effects will have the design elements sandblasted on what’s considered the outside surface, the side you will be able to reach out and touch as you enter the room or building. The opposite surface of the glass is etched overall, creating a beautiful contrast that allows the sandblast etching to really “pop”. The design is viewable from both sides of the glass. 3D Carved effects will have the design elements carved on the same surface that’s etched overall.
How private is this “Privacy Glass?”
There are no clear areason the glass, making the glass 100% opaque. (All surface areas are etched). Anything within approx. 5-12” of the glass surface will be visible in the sense that you can see shapes and shadows. Anything pressed right up against the glass will be visible, so please know that’s expected and normal. This glass is suitable for providing privacy because anything 5” to 12” away from the glass will be obscured enough that objects aren’t discernible. Anything beyond that will not be visible at all, except again for perhaps some shapes and shadows. We don’t typically stand right up against a door or close enough to a door, to see a silhouette. This glass is suitable for a bathroom or bedroom door where privacy is needed.

Multiple Effects, create Multiple Privacy Levels and Prices.
3D: Carved Edges that Capture the Light, and the Eye.
To create 3D carved glass our most popular effect, our skilled sandblast artists use sand as their sculpting tool, cutting and carving the design deep into the glass, step by step, creating a relief texture of varying depths.
2D: Etching with Dimension.
2D features “shaded” areas that are etched on the top surface only, creating a dimensional effect, but 2D is not cut deep into the glass like 3D carved.
1D: Carved Edges that Capture the Light, and the Eye.
Our 1D effect is the traditional, etched or frosted look you think of, when seen on most “etched glass” items. Design elements are solid frosted. There’s no shading, dimension or carving. The design is made up of solid white shapes. Because our designs are gorgeous, custom designed creations (not clip art!), 1D offers a beautiful look, in a lower price range.
Color My World!
If color is desired, the design elements must first be 3D carved, then a glass dye is airbrush painted into the design elements in either translucent or solid, from matte to metallic, depending on the desired effect.
