Trying New Things

So, I saw a glass etching kit and just had to try it out!

The upward circles did not survive the pre-etch cleaning... I'm trying to come up with an alternate pattern.

The etch was thick and lumpy. It's the first time I've used a cream etch, all my previous etching experience was in a printmaking studio, where I mixed it myself.

I only had enough to etch the smaller glasses, and not as evenly as I would have ideally hoped. Overall, though, I like them, and will finish the set.

That looks cool, decorative and useful. Great job! I used to have glasses like that about 25 years ago.

I suspect that stuff would REALLY eff up your skin.

BTW, I really loved The Long Dark Teatime, too.
