Title: Bigfoot's Cryptid Cocktail Hour - Woodsy Etched Rocks Glasses
Post by: TheMistressT on July 31, 2015 08:26:12 AM
You can find a lot of things you're searching for at the bottom of a cocktail glass... even Bigfoot!

One of my besties is a party blogger, so of course when she came out for a visit we had to style a party. And because I am a cocktail-drinking-Bigfoot-fan who lives in the woods, that party theme was Bigfoot's Cryptid Cocktail Hour! WOO!  We made lots of things, but my favorite project was etching this set of 4 dollar store rocks glasses.

Mountains, tall pines, and another of my besties: BIGFOOT!

One glass has Bigfoot right there where you can see him on the side, but the rest of them require you to really search for him... he's on the bottom of the glasses!

More details and photos of the project on my blog: http://suddenlytaxidermy.blogspot.com/2015/07/bigfoots-cryptid-cocktail-hour.html
and lots of photos of the whole shebang on my friend's blog, Fizzy Party: http://www.fizzyparty.com/2015/07/big-foot-cocktail-party.html
We used pieces created by other craftsters that were given to me over the years!

Thanks, y'all!  There was some trial-and-error to this project, but I am really pleased with how they turned out. Every time I do glass etching I am reminded what a satisfying craft it is and vow to do more... and then years later I am reminded again!    ::)

Thank you! It's crazy the kind of drink you can put in a Bigfoot glass! Even plain old water; or so I have been told.

I love these! I'm a Bigfoot fan, as well, and I definitely covet these glasses! I never thought to etch the bottom of the glass- brilliant idea!

Thank you! The idea to etch the bottom of the glass with the BF silhouette came after I'd already started. Of course, once thought of, we knew it was a way better way to celebrate the elusive Mr. 'Foot than having him on the sides.

I will definitely be trying it! I might even have some glasses in the cabinet that would be perfect for this!

 Another Bigfoot fan here (I have a cat names Yeti) and I love these. Very clever to put him at the bottom of the glass! I like that. We all know Bigfoot is a champion hide and seeker. ;)

Thanks! I'm a bit mortified that I was already into the project when I figured out to put him on the bottom!
