Christmas Glass Etching ~ Week 2 Link Up

The kids recently had the opportunity to try their hand at glass etching during one of our local hardware store workshops.

I was pretty excited when we were told they were going to pull out the tools to give the kids a go at this. But I was also a little apprehensive about it all.

I've never used a tool like this and have never attempted to etch onto glass so I wasn't overly sure how successful this would be. I had visions of broken glasses everywhere!

Boy was I wrong! This is so much easier than I could have ever imagined and the kids had an absolute blast.

They were glued to that table the entire workshop. The most important skill needed here is a steady hand but I can see that the more you used the tools the better that would become.

The other great thing is that the tools themselves are not overly expensive and if you choose appropriately they will etch onto not only glass but also timber, metal and ceramic.

Christmas Gift idea here I come!! 

The finished glasses were tricky to photograph and this was made even more difficult by the fact that all edges of the glass have been etched so the images blend in with each other, but they look rather cool and turned out very well indeed.

Love the glass etchings. I used to have a glass etching kit when I was a kid and have been wanting to try it again.
