I am looking to see if there is a thread in here on how to transfer photos to glass for etching.
I have heard of the pnp blue paper, and other things, but any other ideas or even photos/tutorials to get me started.

I'm new at this glass etching thing, and looking for edgy ideas

Thanks

Hi and welcome!  Smiley Great to have some new blood here on the glass boards.

Etching has so many different ways to be done. You have really picked a diverse glass medium. Our tutorials section has some great tuts on etching, and techniques. You can find the thread here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359050.0

Let us know if when you have more questions, and we look forward to seeing your work here! Smiley

I know you can use decals for fused glass...

IIRC there's a type of decal paper you can use in a laser printer to make your own, so you could conceivably make some with your own photos.

Here's a supplier:

Also, a forum about making your own with a laser printer:

Hope this helps you :-) 
Would love to see the finished result.
