I have never done any yet but next month my sister and I are going to try our hand at it. I have a "beginners" kit which includes and etching paste, a brush and some clear sheets for making the stencils (with the Cricut).

If anyone has any tips from experience they have had, that would be great!!

Thanks

Oh, I've seen them doing that on TV, looks like you could make yourself the best stem ware/dinnerware for so little $. haven't tried it myself but I'm certain I have some etching paste somewhere lol

A cricut, those are so cool. My DH was even impressed by it...I wake up one morning and he's going on and on about it (was up in the middle of the night and saw an info-mercial lol). I think every crafter wants that whether they see an immediate need for it or not, it's just too cool. And it already has the adhesive, right? So no need for the messy spray stuff, that's great.

The adhesive stays on the sheet (the Cricut cutting mat) but you can cut contact paper or other adhesive materials. They even have a deep cut blade so you can cut chip board (not for glass etching just thought I'd mention it) LOL -- maybe we should have a section here for Cricut and things to do with it? That would be cool. ;)

Good morning! Oh, that's a bummer, I thought the adhesive stayed with the cut.

I remember thinking it was pronounced cricket, was a long time before I realized it was 'cry cut', such a neat thing.

It will be towards the end of March when we are getting together. I will be sure to show pictures after! I picked up 6 glass items at the thrift store last weekend to practice on. I am sure hoping it goes well!!
