I've never been very interested in etching, but I was at Dollar Tree the other day and I happened upon an etching pen/tool/whatever you call it. I said "Hey, it's a dollar. Might as well give it a try!" so I got that, and a big beer mug and decided that would be part of my Dad's Christmas present if my etching was a success.



Well, I like the outcome a lot, but I regret not practicing on anything before starting! I just dove right in.







Voila! Awesome present for only $2.14! Plus it will go great with the other part of his present: some fancy German beer!
I used this deer clipart as a reference.

Now I'm addicted to using this cheap little etching tool!! I want to etch everything I own!

That came out awesome - and no practice runs?  Nice!
I bought the exact same etching tool, too - I'm glad yours worked well, I haven't tried mine yet.

That looks really nice!
I used my dremel tool to etch a glass and when I was done, I was looking around my house too, to see what I could etch more Cheesy
