Recently I was contacted by Eric and asked if I would review his eBook.
Although I have never etched glass before I accepted his offer. My family enjoys crafting. I thought we would try our hands at glass etching.
The eBook is written in a way that anyone can understand it. There are twenty four pages broken down in three parts. There are lots of pictures throughout this eBook. I was awed by the endless assortment of what you can do with glass etching.
I used vinyl stick on letters.
It would of turned out clearer on clear glass but I had to use my favorite dish with the words, yummy and chocolate. The words did get noticed by the kids last week when I brought brownies.
Little Man tried his hand at it. I didn't have a vinyl stick on instead we used tape and an open stencil.
I can see that a vinyl stick on is necessary. Little Man loved it and had a blast. He didn't care that it wasn't perfect.
I would recommend that you help the kids 100% as the etching material is a chemical.
