Here is a glass I etched for Brian over at Krampert's Finest. This is a double rocks etched in a relief style. What do you guys think? Anyone recommend a finer thing to go in it?

Nice work, Drew! Perhaps some fine rum to fill the glass and bring out the finer essence here ... Smile

BTW, there's a small typo with 'atershave'.

Wondered if anyone would notice, this was a sample piece. That was quick. Nice work. The production glasses will be correct. Had some stencil problems.

Yep looking good, even with typo.

As stated, just needs some ice and good premium rum or some Buffalo Trace and a splash of water.

No offense taken, like I said, this was a sample, found the mistake after it was made. Had a faulty stencil. Always heard if you don't make a mistake every once in a while you're not doing anything. Biggrin

Looking good. You put enough liquor in there and you won't notice the typo. Wink

I probably wouldn't even need a refill. One would do. Glad everyone likes it. Thanks.

How do you etch it? I'm thinking sand blasting is out of the question right? Is it acid etched? edit: no, can't be acid, glass doesn't react to acid...

Has to be a mechanical method. I thought blasting would damage the glass, no?

Actually it is sand blasted. Low pressure and fine grit.

They sure do look good! I wish I'd had them for a grill get together we had a few weeks ago for friends. There will be other times though. The wife and I plan to be the first users anyway.

Ahh, sandblasted, that explains the production problems regarding the font!

Regarding acid etching... I understand that persulfuric acid will etch glass. Just a factoid I remember from Chem class many years ago. I have no other information about it.

Just a few minor problems with the stencils during production, nothing that could not be overcome. Sandblasting creates a smooth and even surface when blasted. The acid creams have the tendency to leave brush marks or streaks and be uneven. I hope you enjoy them.
