Update on my non-etchable IKEA glass:  I tried again, and it still didn't work on the outside, but it did work on the inside. It must have some kind of covering that makes it greener, yet non-etchable. 
Oh well.

if you make the design on the inside does it show through at all? seems like that could be a kind of neat effect. if the dark glass didn't just cover it up.

I love this idea.  I did a couple of shot glasses last year as gifts and they turned out awesome.  This year I bought all kinds of stuff to etch, from more shot glasses to a set complete with cocktail shaker and martini glasses.  I really ought to get started on those...QUESTION for redqueen??what is rub-n-buff and where can I get some?

Thanks!  By the way, this is my first post although I have been lurking as a guest for many months!

Rub-n-Buff comes in little tubes in an assortment of finishes. It's kinda waxy/creamy and WILL wash off with hot water and soap. It's not something you'd want to use if you are going to put it on something you are going to wash a lot. But if it comes off, you can put more on. Most craft stores have it. It's usually found near the leafing supplies.

So inspired that I made these for my mom in-law for yule.  I should've left the cream on a bit longer, though.

Sorry about the awful pictures, but it's hard to take pics of glass when it doesn't want to stop being so shiny!

Thanks, jennybean!  I loved your glasses, too, and may borrow your idea for a set of shot glasses for my brother.

Oooh, just wanted to add my thanks for a great tutorial and a fantastic gift idea for my in-laws that are the "have everything they want and can buy whatever they want" type.

They are wine snobs, er, buffs... so here is a set of wine glasses I made for them.  They read: "The Wino" (FIL's nickname), "Carpe Diem", "Fortis" (two of MILs favorite phrases/words), and "Poverty Sucks" (FIL has an old poster that says that).
