Glass Etching
 
2 Attachment(s)
My daughter and I worked yesterday on gifts for the 4 girls I work with. I wanted to do glass etching but never did it before. After testing it out on some glasses and a lot of time getting the old Cricut Personal to work the way we wanted I think they turned out really nice. Not perfect...but that is ok. I am really happy with them.

I spend $5.00 on the small glass dish and $6.00 for the big one. All in all after the Etch cream and the contact paper I probably only spent $15.00 on each girl and for that they get one big dish with their last name and one small dish with just the first letter of their last name. I have seen these on Etsy for close to $35.00-$45.00.

With a newer craft cutter - you could make a killing making these :) The hardest part was getting the paper to line up right on the glass before you put the etch cream on it.

Has anyone else done this? If so please post a picture...I am very interested :)

My husband did glass etching but he used a dentist drill. Did beautiful work.

That is very nice. I have thought about doing that but haven't tried it yet.

Back in the day when everyone I knew smoked, I'd put their name on a clear glass ashtray. So when some one said 'hey that's my ashtray' and got the reply 'I don't see your name on it' the owner could say "look closer!"

Very nice. I've done it before, don't have any pictures, but still have the stuff to do it with. It's lots of fun.

You can also buy the stick on stencils to do the etching, and then just peel them off!
