etched glasses…

school auction is coming up and we are collecting for a Stock the Bar raffle…anything for your home bar.  so in addition to a few bottles of wine and booze, i thought i’d contribute a set of etched glasses.  just for fun.

glasses

i looked up how to toast in different languages and formatted the words in different fonts.

i traced each word onto the right side of contact paper using a fine tip permanent marker and adhered each word onto each glass.  with an exacto knife, i slowly cut away each letter carefully.(see detailed instructions from my star wars cups here).

etcing cream

using a small brush, i covered the letters with etching cream and let it sit for 5-7 minutes.  under cool water, the cream was washed away and the contact paper carefully pulled off.  with a dry paper towel, i wiped the area really clean to remove any residue.  it sort of buffs the area as well.
