You guys all know the brilliant frosted glassware tutorial thats posted, right?
Well I've been interested in it for agesssss and have been hasseling the guys down at Goldings Handcrafts in Wellington ever since to get some Armour Etch. After 8 months of waiting it's finally in stock now and retails for $40 or so for 3oz and $85 or so for 12oz.

I frosted some martini glasses last night and damn they are hot! hahah!

Anyway just thought it was a cool idea for xmas pressies etc. Expensive hobby but worth it  Cheesy

Man, that's expensive.  I should have bought some while they still had it at Spotlight.  Apparently none of the stores in Australia or NZ sell it any more.

A little bit goes a long way though, right?  I should bug the people at Hands to get some.

I've got the 12oz bottle - what I do to make it last longer and go a little bit further is recycle the cream. After the creams been on a glass for 5 or so minutes I simply scrape it off and apply it onto the next glass. Works just the same - and plus I've etched about 20 glasses already and the bottle is still full! So yeah, when you think about it the price aint toooo bad.

And they used to have it at spotlight you say?! What! God damn!! I asked and asked and asked and they just looked at me with a blank face "etching cream?Huh". agh!


amc5 - sorry I don't know Auckland too well. Just ring around crafty places, otherwise if you want i'm sure I could help you out somehow  Grin

Hi ellipse,

I'm in Sydney but was wondering what the url for goldings is.

Their etching cream might be a bit cheaper than the stores over here.

Starmeg- my friend got some etching cream from hands- she said it was "bloody expensive" but you could probably make a buck or two selling pretty etched things at the riccarton market etc.

Ooh, I've never seen it at Hands.  I'll have to go in and ask about it.

Market - that reminds me - but this idea will have to go in a new topic I think, so go and read it there!

Hi all, I'm also wondering what the URL is for Goldings' website? I've been searching for them online without any luck so far :-( Does anyone here know where to find them?

Cheers,
Miriam
