It's just me, so don't get too excited :) I had a day to fill and thought I could entertain you with a great tutorial on glass etching. It's so easy to do and makes wonderful personalized gifts on any flat glass or mirrored surface.
your glass item - I'm using a beer glass
glass etching cream (found at any craft store)
glass cleaner and paper towel
printable sticker sheet
Step 1: clean your glass item well with glass cleaner ensuring there are no fingerprints
Step 2: print your image on the sticker sheet and cut around the image leaving plenty of room around the image
Step 3: Carefully stick your image on the glass making sure there aren't any air bubbles
Step 4: Using your x-acto knife VERY carefully cut out the outline of your image
Step 5: Peel the inside of your outlined image off the glass and wipe again with glass cleaner
Step 6: Paint a generous amount of the etching cream onto your stencil. Remember that whatever the etching cream touches it will frost that area so be careful that the cream does not drip.
Step 7: Let sit for 5 minutes
Step 8: Wash the etching cream off and remove the remaining sticker sheet from the glass.
Step 9: Wash the glass thoroughly and you are now ready to enjoy a funny frosty beverage :)
The etching is permanent and dishwasher safe! I've used this same technique to make monogrammed sets of glasses for gifts and even monogrammed small mirrors and glued ribbon on the back as an ornament. The possibilities are really endless and one small jar of etching cream will last through many projects. Have fun!
