Beer glass

Hi Everyone, our first challenge of the New Year and it's -


My eldest brother has his birthday soon and I decided to give him something personal, we only give little gifts, so an idea, when I saw this glass in a supermarket, came to me. 

Using my Silhouette Cameo and some Oracle 651 vinyl I cut out the design I made in the Cameo design space. I added it to the glass with transfer paper and when it was all stuck with no bubbles, I added Etchall cream to the design on the glass, I left it for 15 minutes, although the instructions say a minute or two, I like to make sure it's really got on the glass. I removed as much of the paste as possible back into the container to be reused, then washed off the remaining cream and removed the vinyl. This is the result, it's so difficult to get a decent photo, the only way I could do it was to place it on my knees. I think I should have washed it properly before taking the photo LOL.

I placed a beer bottle inside and wrapped it.

I thought it so funny how the glass has distorted my knees, they are rounded I promise!

I love this Faith!!
Always wondered about the glass etch paste!! But now I might need to buy it!!
This is really etched in the glass? It won't come off when wash it?

What a wonderful idea, Faith! I used to do glass etching but haven't touched any of that in years. Your brother is going to love this. :-D

Hi Sandra, NO it won't come off, it's "etched" into the glass, you just have to be careful NOT to let it go anywhere you don't want it, as as soon as the paste touches the glass it etches, so every part that is NOT to be etched needs to be covered. Hope that helps, wash away that glass LOL.
