Another cool tip can be found here -- she used fabric paint to make stencils and it worked great!

It IS easy, and fun and YES it's safe.  The etching cream is an acid -- you don't want to let it sit on your skin or you will get a surface burn -- but it washes off completely with soap and water!   Wink  Have fun!!

thanks so much! it just seemed like this was too easy for something that looks like you could have bought it at a store and im sooo excited to try it..i only hope i can find it in store tommorrow! lol thanks so much! i was just worried about toxic crap and what not and not being too safe to drink from since recently in my house we had a resin scare( the spoon i use to measure resin was mixed with the regular dishes accidentally in the dishwasher and then put away with the dishes...and we had eaten off of those so needless to say we dialed poison control pretty fast!)  since then im uber careful !

This tutorial really is awesome.  I've etched SO many things since I read this... it's the perfect gift.  I've etched glasses for everything from weddings to graduation parties to teacher gifts.  They're so impressive, yet so easy!

And definitely dishwasher safe and safe to drink out of. Smiley

I would like to make something similar to the items Etsy seller Hunterglass has in his shop here:
http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=53666

I absolutely love his stuff. He sandblasts his things, but since etching cream seems to be an easier route, I'd like to try that. I think probably what I'll try first is making shot glasses with flames on them, and paint them red, yellow, orange, or a combination of those colors. And can anyone tell if the designs are etched on the inside or outside of the glass? I found one that looks like it's on the outside, but inside might be more fun - you can see that it's there, but can't feel it. Then again, I like to feel etched stuff...I guess I'll make up my mind on that later. Cheesy

I have a difficult time coming up with gifts for my brother - and men in general, although most of the rest of the men I buy gifts for don't drink, so shot glasses probably wouldn't be the best idea Cheesy - so when I saw these, I thought, hey, if I can pull that off, that might actually be something that would be met with some enthusiasm.

So, I need to know how to color the glass once I've etched it. I've searched this topic for the word color, and now have some questions on the little I was able to find.

For different colors I've heard that you can add Powdered Pearls pigments (Like PearlEx) to your cream, mix it really well and it will leave a tint of the color to the etching.  I tried this one a glass but I don't think I used nearly enough powdered pearls as it didn't have any kind of effect on the outcome.  I have no idea the ratio you should use but maybe it does really work.

This sounds really neat, and  I just bought 24 trial-size jars of Pearl Ex powders for a different project. I searched the internet, but found no specific instructions for this technique. Does anyone know more about this? I'd need to know how much to use, because the amounts I have are pretty small. I wouldn't want to use up all of one color, especially if it wasn't something I couldn't buy more of locally. I don't mind buying a larger quantity, but I do want to have an idea of how much I'll need before running to the craft store.

You can buy glass paints though, that you bake in your oven, between 300 and  325 degrees for half an hour, which should work for adding color. ( I use Pebeo's Porcelaine 150 paint on tiles and plan to try Vitrea 160 on glass--says it's dishwasher safe!  http://www.pebeo.com, http://www.pebeo.com/asp/prod/catalogue.asp?lang=us&c=4)

Before I found this advice, I'd searched the internet for dishwasher-safe paints here:
http://www.violtan.com/articles/paints_glasswc_en.php

There are several different kinds, and I was hoping someone here who had used different kinds might be able to give me some advice on brands and whether they might work with etching. Could I etch, clean the glass, and then apply the paints to the etched part? Do you think that would provide the results I'm looking for? And does anyone happen to know how well they blend? Would the paints be appropriate for an airbrush? I know absolutely nothing about airbrushing, but I'm guessing if the paint is really thick, airbrushing and/or blending wouldn't be an option. Also, if I painted the inside of a glass, would that be okay as far as safety is concerned?

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."
