Well, I experimented with my new camera before sending stuff to opiate_rose; if I can get the file size down small enough, I'll try to post a couple of pictures....

First attempt: had to do all kinds of weidness to get these down to size.  Want to post these two first to see if it is even worth messing with the rest of the items.  Wish me luck -- here it goes :
 You should be seeing a set of Martini glasses I frosted (my first attempt at etching glass), and a close up of one of them....

Those are beautiful. I like the way you can't really set them down. I bet that makes for a fun party!  Cheesy

The glasses are beautiful!  Are those dragonflies and dolphins I see?

Yep, I made each different -- with varied success.  If this next picture works, you should be able to see all 4: dragonflies, dolphins, party favors, and motorcycles.  My progression from the 1st to the 4th is pretty obvious, as I learned that simple shapes are better, and ultra-long etch times are best; I'm sure glad I read the tutorial here, or the first one would have been an utter wreak!



Also included in the box were some glass olive skewers, a CD of music, two red towels with my first attempts at beaded embroidery (opiate_rose was very tolerant of my experimenting on her, bless 'er), some funny cocktail napkins, and a set of experimental coasters, with cosmos strategically added to postcard images, such as these:




Lesson Learned: E6000 glue and Xyron laminate do NOT go great together!  Only one of the 6 coasters had a wee wrinkle in it before I glued them into place.  The next morning, all 6 were wrinkled -- *soto voce snarl inserted here*  Tongue
