This is my first time posting one of my projects. I welcome any comments/criticism/tips.

I was inspired by a post here on Craftster a long time ago and finally got around to trying it myself.
This is the post that planted the seed: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=211082.0
I did the vases for my mom and sister and the glasses for my dad. They were Christmas gifts this year.
I can't draw worth beans so I used downloaded images of snowflakes resized for my purposes.

Finished Vases(on my bathroom counter, lol):

Vase in progress(on the floor in front of my linen closet, hehe):

Finished Glasses:

Nest time I will use better quality vases and not leave everything til the last minute so I have time to be the perfectionist that I usually am:)

Those are wonderful cold weather glasses.  They came out very nice.  I like the dainty snowflakes.

These are very festive.  I had never heard of glass etching before and it sounds like a fun and interesting project.

Etching was much easier than I expected. The main reason they are simple is because I can't draw hehe. But I though they came out well for my first attempts:) Thanks for the comments!

Can I ask? What is the black stuff you used to stop the acid?

The black stuff is fabric paint. That is what the craftster who inspired me had used and it worked really well. Except it wasn't as easy to peel off as I expected:P I like it though because you can make any design you want and aren't restricted to whatever stencils you can find. I mostly painted it on just with the bottle's own tip, but for the smallest areas I used a toothpick to spread it on hehe. Improvisation for the win.

That seems to be a really clever method of etching the glasses. They turned out great! You picked an awesome design for the glasses!
