So I decided to give it a try and make a gift for my MIL...oh, for last Mother's Day. I didn't get to it as quickly as I would have liked, and on the first go-round, I messed up the pitcher a little. Good thing she and I share the same last initial, because I have a new pitcher with a slightly messed up "H" etched on it!
So the gift has been put off 6 months, and now her birthday is around the corner, and I'm determined to get to it again.
So, I'm going to give my hand at a pitcher (straight sides this time!) and 4 drinking glasses. I can't decide if I want to etch all the pieces with the same "H", or if I want to use a different font for each glass. My thought was, that if each glass was different, then you would never get confused as to which glass was yours! I narrowed it down to 6 choices.
Here's what you (and I) need to remember:
-etching cream is EXPENSIVE, but also REUSABLE. Be prepared to do LOTS of projects.
-pick a glass item with straight sides. Cylindrical is ok...but not rounded or bulbous.
