1  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
