Our iron filter is under maintenence, and I need to do some work -- will rusty water do anything weird to the etched glass??

Any guesses?

Thanks --

What type of glasses did you use? I can only find the rounded ones for a decent price, and I'm worried they won't look as good, since the rounded shape might look silly. Huh

Rounded can look great! The key is not to use designs that are so big that wrapping around out of sight makes them hard to see.

You can see some samples here on craftster:

First of all, this is a really great guide and idea for presents! Thank you for posting it!

I have a problem though... My project is dealing with bigger glass jars and cork glass vials, I'm using alphabet stickers to write my friend's names on them and then putting the cream on it. I've been successful with this so far on bigger glass jars but not on these cork glass vials! The vials I have, which I'm pretty sure is glass, and the other glass jars are from this site: http://www.sciplus.com/singleItem.cfm/terms/13942. Here's the link to the picture if it helps any: http://www.sciplus.com/itm_photos/BU015.jpg

Anyway, I've left the big ones with the etching cream on for like an hour (thinking that it had to be dry before washing, either way it worked). Now I left my vials on for an hour as well and then when I went to wash them... there was literally no sign of the "frost" look! I've tried leaving a thin layer, leaving it on for a minute, five minutes, ten/fifteen minutes and it still didn't work!
Would anyone have an answer for why the etching cream doesn't want to etch onto the vials? Or if the thickness of the glass could be a problem? Any idea/help would be great!!! Thank you!

edit:: Does the temperature of the water make a difference? I've been using hot water on the vials, I don't quite remember what I used for the big jars. And would it help if the glass was warm instead of cold when applying the etching cream?


P.S. Armour Etch is expensive D:! 9.50$ for a 3 oz at Lyon's >_<!

Thickness of glass and temp of water don't make a difference and you definitely dont need to leave the cream on for an hour....
Most likely, the vials arent actually glass. :/
