Etching Dishes

I LOVE ETCHING DISHES!!! It is pretty much the bomb diggety. I mean how cool is it to give a gift that is personalized that they can take with them to a party and if it is left there, they know who brought it.

So hubby and I had already bought my brother in law and my new sister in law a dish set that they were wanting for a wedding present. But really... you know me... I can't not do something personalized. So I made them etched dishes.

I never posted it, but this is the shirt that I made for my sister in law using my heat press machine:

Front:

Back:

So I took this design (the front anyways) and etched a small Pyrex dish to coordinate with the shirt:

I loved how it turned out... I mean seriously... I need to etch some of our dishes! Isn't it pretty!!!

My awesome and very talented sister in law drew this last summer:

So I turned that... into this:

I love love love it!

I think they were pretty psyched that I took the time to make them something. For the picture one I couldn't capture every detail, it had too much and would have taken a lot of time weeding it, but I just love how it turned out!

What do you think? Do you want to run out and try it too? Just remember to weed the positive, not the negative of the vinyl or what ever other material you are using to protect the glass. Also, the etching cream does run, so be careful if you are doing the sides of the dish... otherwise you will have to use some creative license to fix it... just sayin' I learned from experience.

Anyways, can't wait to hear what you think!

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the stuff of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done a amazing job with this. Excellent Blog!
