I decided to try out some of the ideas for etching I have found while floating around in blog land. I saw the pyrex glass dish here that I really liked so I thought I would give it a try. I saw the monogrammed glasses here and loved them.
I started out by cutting all the lettering out with my cricut machine on some leftover contact paper I had from a previous project. I punched out the letters and used what you normally would throw away.
After finding the perfect placement on all the glassware, I glopped on some of the fantastic etching cream with a Q-Tip (I bought Armour Etch from Michael's on Ebates with a coupon and got paid an additional 7% cash back). I let it sit and do it's magic for a few minutes. Then I just rinsed it off and admired my wonderful work! :-D
For a first timer, I think they came out GREAT! I have sooo many other plans for this amazing product!
