My boyfriend loves the original Star Trek so I decided to try my hand at glass etching.  He also likes beer so I etched some pilsner glasses.  I also posted pics of the packaging incase some of the rest of your are fans.

So awesome! My boyfriend would also totally love this.

I really should try glass etching. It's so simple, but it always looks so nice. Maybe next Christmas...

It really was easy and fun - AFTER you cut the stencils out.  I nearly threw numerous things across the room when I was cutting out the words.   Tongue  The pictures were fairly easy.  So...if you try it (and you totally should), don't do words unless you are using stickers or something pre-done like that.   Smiley

Wow, very nice, as is the customized box! As someone who's also a fan of Original Trek, I'm sure he'll be delighted.

Those are awesome!  I'd love to have something like that, in fact half my family would (the Star Trek gene is inherited!) Maybe I'll give something similar a go one day.  Thanks for the inspiration Smiley

Thanks  Smiley

My boyfriend loves them.  Everytime he has a beer he pours it in and smiles then admires the beauty of the beer and the glass.  Tongue
