This is amazingly awesome! I need to learn to make poppets! Any chance you'll be adding a Mrs. Lovett? Cheesy

4  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Glass etching on curved surfaces on: September 13, 2010 08:24:56 PM
Hi all,

I tried etching for the first time tonight. I saw some of the awesome WoW Horde etched glasses on here, and decided to try and make some for my boyfriend for Christmas. I picked up some glasses at the dollar store. They unfortunately didn't have any glasses that were straight, up and down... they all curved in towards the bottom. The etching went pretty well, but since the glass was curved, I couldn't get the stencil to lay completely flat, which meant some bleeding. I tried to clean it up freehand and just made a bigger mess of things, so I'm going to have to start all over with new glasses Sad

Does anyone have any tips on how to avoid the gapping/bleeding on a curved surface?

Thanks!
Ashley
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Christmas 2009, what are you making? on: October 09, 2009 10:41:24 PM
Ok, ok, I know, already?! But I am so excited for Christmas! 'Christmas in July' must mean something, I always get excited for Christmas this time of year.

Well, I'm running behind... I just got started on making things about a week ago. So far, I don't really have too many things planned out to make for certain people... its more that I'm making lots of little things and then deciding who to give them to Wink

So far, I've made a bunch of tea cup candles, melt and pour soap, handmade note cards, and charm bracelets. I'm planning to make up some wire birds nest pendants and tree of life pendants, too. I'm also making some scarves out of some cool yarn I found at Big Lots... and then I'm trying to finish a throw blanket I've been working on for YEARS for my mom.

I wish I could figure out some things to make for my husband... I'm going to make him a new scarf, but beyond that, I'm lost. He's not very sentimental... he like politics, baseball, military stuff, beer, Star Trek, classic rock music...

I've really enjoyed reading about what everyone else is making! Smiley
