There are a few ways to make frosted glasses. I chose to etch because I am going to use them on drinking glasses. The alternative would be to use frosted pearl spray paint. The spray paint is a much faster process but it also has lead in it so, if you plan on using your glassware to drink or eat from then I suggest you take my route as well.

Step 1: wrap your glass with rubber bands
Stretch a few rubber bands around your drinking glass. I stretched mine unevenly for a neat effect.
Step 2: apply the etching cream to the glass
PUT YOUR GLOVES ON and dip your paintbrush in the acid and apply several layers to your glassware. Let it sit for a while. Somewhere between 20 minutes and half an hour work for me.
Step 3: rinse the glass
Rinse your glass thoroughly and dry. The etching will slowly start to appear, giving it a frosted look. Be patient.
There you have it! Frosted glasses. A great addition to your kitchen!
