Pint Glass Etched With Name and Image Using Cricut Expression

Last night i etched this pint glass, i am please with how it turned out, I normally use my robo but i have not set it back up after my shift around so it was easier to do it on my cricut!

Easy to make... not so easy to photograph!

One side says Jade and the other has a moon and stars on it

I just popped some tissue in it to see if i could make the etching show up a bit!

The glasses are etched usinf a stencil cut from vinyl, then after applying the stencil to the glass you put a special paste on that eats a layer of the glass and voila!
Etched forever!

Hope you like it, if you would like a photo tutorial on this let me know and i will pop something together for you!

Looks good. I only have an original baby cricut and normal blade housing, don't know if that cuts vinyl. Would love to see how you do it though.
