21-05-2017 Acid etching Art Nouveau glass

Recently I had to reproduce an Art Nouveau acid etched glass window that was broken. Here a short briefing how it was made.

The Art Nouveau glass design was made circa 120 years ago by etching the glass with acid. This time i got a second original panel that was in the door next to it, so i could perfectly reproduce the design. More then often the redrawing and retracing the original designs take more time then actualy acid etching the glass with acid. The result is stunning, nobody could tell me wich one was the original or the reproduced panel.

Here a video of the result:
