Hi,

Did these as a present for Futurama addicted friends. The most difficult etches I've done yet!  Mostly happy with the final results, except the edges of Bender are less clean than I want...

Sorry that the photos are all fuzzy; I literally finished them AT the friends' house, so I didn't have the luxury of setting up nice shots....

Bottom of glasses all have Hypnotoad staring at you:


Bender:

Leela:

(I should have etched in her tank top...)

Fry:

I really wish this was in focus, because I am inordinately pleased with the brain slug!

I'm so happy I'm giddy!  Another site I haunt is Geek Crafts.  I've never posted there, but I love the stuff they find.  And to my surprise, they found these!  They are over at geekcrafts.com now.

*does a wee, shy, quirky -- but very happy -- happy dance*
