Sending a couple bottles to some friends, figured I'd mark them up so they don't forget who the beer is from!





bottle was still damp in the last photo, it did come out fairly even. Had the etching paste left over from our wedding, we etched a bunch of glasses for that.

What would work even better than masking tape or wax is a liquid mask designed for painting models/rc shells. "Bob Daveli's" works awesome. Paint it on in 3 or so medium thick layers, drying in between. Then trace your design with a hobby knife and peel off. Easy to get more intricate designs / extremely crisp lines.

Basic video instructions here for the liquid mask.

After Etching try, "Rub 'n Buff" to make your Glass Etchings stand out from the glass. Apply it to the etched portions of your glass then rub it off with a paper towel. It adheres to the etched part of the glass and wipes away easily from the un-etched sections of the glass. The Silver color looks very much like the actual Etch on the Glass...Only Much Brighter.

PS. Looks like its available at Hobby Lobby and Micheals

No. Glass etching permanently etches the glass.
