Anyway, we played around with glass etching yesterday. We had brought over some glass jars to experiment on, and it worked out well.
There are a few steps:
1. Design and cut out stencils. I did a variety of things on the Cameo machine, using adhesive vinyl in colors I don't like.
From left to right, you can see the stencils for a turtle, the moon (hard to see) the letter S with stars, and a dog foot.
2. Then the etching goo is put over the stencils.
3. And here is what we get:
AND there were experimental Christmas ornaments! Here's a protip: even if you order 3" diameter acrylic blanks, they may not be 3" wide! Measure twice, cut once!
There were all cut out from vinyl on the machine, and then placed on a sort of three inch acrylic blank. The top 2 are on silver glitter, and the bottom two are on holographic vinyl. Holographic vinyl is very very cool.
