Ooo, tutorials!

I still haven't ventured into the realm of working with glass, but maybe I'll do so soon now that I know where some good tutorials are...

Ahhh, I'm the same way!  I've used Armor Etch, but I really want to venture into the other techniques.  It's always seemed a bit intimidating to me, though... well, maybe until now! ;D

Ooh, awesome!  I've been wanting to try mosaics, and now I have something to work off of!

And I love Armor Etch.  It's so great, and the results are phenomenal!  This is a terrific resource!

I have been taking the Continuing Education class on Glass Blowing at RISD. It is very exciting and very challenging to work with hot molten glass. I have taken many ceramics and pottery classes over the years-This class blew them all away. It is like the extreme sport of arts & crafts. The glass is moving as well as rotating while you work it. I am in Love

I love hand etching on glass wine bottles. I am very happy to see some videos on the etching. I would love to see some hand etching tutorials using a Dremel :D

Does anyone know if you can use rubber cement in place of puffy paint with the cream etching?  Or would there be some weird chemical reaction...

Not sure, but I would say do a test on a scrap glass to see if it would work. Rubber cement is an odd substance, and I'm not sure if it would stand up to the etching material. Let us know how it goes! :)
