Etching & Painting
At Aquacut, we have different technologies to enable us to etch and paint a variety of materials. We can etch stone, porcelain, ceramics, glazed materials, concrete, metals, plastics, and glass. By combining materials, designers, artists, and architects have been able to create really imaginative and stunning pieces of work as well as highly effective signage, images and logos. Etching on its own works best with dark material to give a stronger contrast, however, designers have valued the subtlety an etched design in lighter material can show, with the design becoming more or less visible as the viewer moves over the face of the material. Aquacut also offers specialist paints which were developed for exterior and interior applications. Paints with specific RAL colours can be mixed and when combined with an etched surface may increase the design’s visibility and impact.
