Alex:

I was wondering how come your glasses appear to be colored when there done, but during the process look clear/normal?  Please explain.

Thanks!

The "colored" glasses are clear but filled with a colored beverage. :-D  Ya' gotta look really close!

A kitchen store in my mall went out of business a while ago, so I got these glasses for 50 cents a piece. I'm thinking of selling them. they all have pairs. I use masking tape and cut out the image freehand with an exacto knife. I've also been etching cheap votive holders from AC Moore

For my first ever post, I wanted to share the etched glasses you all inspired me to make...these were a V-Day gift.  These are logos of two Philadelphia sports teams, the Flyers and Eagles.

you're brilliant, styrofoamkitty and the others who've made frosted glasses! beautiful work. i want to make some too but i have no idea where to get etching cream where i live (france). any french ppl out there who know what this is called and where i can get it?? anyway, i have these yogurt (i'm addicted to vanilla) containers i save because they're pretty and made of glass. right now i just fill them half-full of rock salt and place votice candles in them. but if they were frosted, they'd be prettier i think. thanks for the inspiration whether i get to do this as a project or not!  Smiley

I am so excited to share this here!

I just discovered using heat embosing and rubber stamps to etch glass!

1.  Stamp on the glass with clear embosing ink or Versamark ink

2.  Sprinkle on your clear embosing powder and tap off excess.

3.  Carefully heat with heat gun.  Go slow, and make sure the glass is not ice cold first or it will crack/explode in your face!  Look for the powder to disapear or go from powdery to clear.  This is like an instant stencil.  The cream will not etch it off!

4.  Tape off around your design with painters tape.

5.  Apply etching cream; use a sponge brush, go up and down, side to side and apply very thick.

6.  Let sit 15 minutes.

7.  Rinse off (or scrape off and use again).

8.  Scrape off the embossing with your fingernail or appropriate substitute,

9.  Remove tape and clean item well.

10.  Enjoy your item!

Tips:  clean item well with windex.  Use rubber stamps with very bold designs.  Practice on microscope slides (very cheap).  Or etch slides and use in jewelry, windchimes, or collage!  Stamping is easier on a flat surface - use squared off items.  Also take your inked stamp, put it stamp side up on the table and place your item on that and press down;  allows you to see where the center point is.  Also, before you heat embosing powder check to see that stamp came out clear and powder has stuck well... if it doesn't look good; remove powder with windex and start again.  Good Luck! Smiley

I made these glasses for a Christmas gift. I bought the beer glasses at Goodwill for $.49 each and I bought some "White Frost Glass Etching Cream" at Wal*Mart for, like, $3.50 that was 2 OZ in size. I made a stencil by free-handing fraternity symbols onto contact paper and then used an x-acto knife to cut it out. Here is the end result:
