1  Re:Frosted glass -- How to make your own frosted glassware! in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by gen_m on: December 02, 2003 07:51:10 PM
when i saw this post, i loved the idea, so i tried it myself.  i bought some armour-etch (for something like 23$ CAD) and two wine glasses for my parents (it's their christmas present).  i did the whole glass, but i couldn't get it on evenly.  do you have any ideas or tips?  i did a test run first on an old glass and it came out awesome (i didn't do the whole glass, though), so i thought it would be even on the other glasses.

anyway.  tips and tricks or advice is greatly appreciated on this!

and here are the pictures of the glasses:

this is the good one





see what i mean?  it's all streaky.  what happened?  the only thing i can think of is that i did it twice (i put the etching cream on twice, i mean).  i'm thinking i'm going to buy another couple of glasses and try this again!  sigh.  thankfully, the glasses were only 2$ each, so i'm not too upset!  =)
