I have always wanted to try glass etching. I thought that it would be a great Christmas gift this year. I put aside my fears of playing with acid and gave it a shot. I used Armour Etch, an x-acto knife, and some contact paper. Like always, I forgot to take in progress shots, but I did remember to take some pictures of the final products. I'm really happy with how they turned out. Up close you can see some fuzzy lines and rough cuts, but over all, they look pretty awesome.
From left to right, the symbol for Earth from Stargate, the Imperial symbol from Star Wars, and a Creeper face from MineCraft.
A set for my fried who just got a house and engaged, the Imperial symbol and the Rebel symbol from Star Wars.
Finally, Rarity's cutie mark. I couldn't seem to get a picture without glare on it. It was the second best glass I made. I was really happy whit how it turned out since it involved so much detail.
Thanks for looking. I also suggest you all try etching, as long as you remember to do it in a well ventilated room, with gloves and long sleeves. It does not feel nice when you get the cream on bare skin.
