I did this once when I was a kid at some afterschool art classes I used to go to.  This thread totally inspired me to try it out again.  I made these for my sister's twenty first birthday - her favorite drink is a cosmopolitan.  I kind of had to skew the original shoe image I had to make it look right on the martini glasses - but it was fun figuring out how to make it look right on the funny shape.



Oh, and to answer the question on the last post - the little bottle I got which is not quite half gone after doing these was $10 at A.C.Moore (which is kinda like Micheals, but better IMHO).

I got mine from http://www.orinococrafts.com/category68_1.htm.  Decent delivery times, too.

Will be doing some glasses soon, the stencils are proving rather more time-consuming to make than I'd originally thought.

What can I use aside from stickers? I want to etch my own stencil on it! Wink

BTW, I live in the Philippines and I bought a small jar of this glass etching cream at a craft store for less than $2. Smiley

anyone try this stuff?  http://www.photoez.itcstore.com/default.aspx?p=87114

What would happen if I added some paint to the armor etch?? I wanted to make these glasses my friend like. It has pink and green spots on it that didnt look like they were painted on. Would that work? Or would there be some weird side effect to the armor etch...?

Armor etch is an acid that eats away at the surface of the glass.  Once you rinse it off, there will be no residue, so the paint won't stay.  Chemically speaking, I wouldn't want to go mixing it unless I know what I was doing anyway.

I went to Micheals Arts & Crafts awhile a go to pick some of this stuff up, but they didn't have any.  I guess it's been recalled in Canada for some labelling reason. 

Micheals is pretty far for me to travel to.  Anyone know if it's back on the shelves in Canada yet?

If you can't get Armor Etch in Canada right now, you can try "Etch All".  I know this on-line Canadian stained glass supply store carries it:

They've always been pleasant when I've dealt with them.

I just tried etching glasses for my sisters christmas present and it did not work. I bought etching cream from Michaels, it was only like 5 bucks but it was all they had. The tub had no directions so I follwed the ones on this tutorial. When I rinsed the galsses after like 15 minutes all the etching washed off and the glasses looked normal. I tried lettng the cream stay on for about an hour and a half and it still washed off. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know what to do differently? I need help!! because this s all my sister is getting for x mas from me. thanks everyone!
