I did some practice tries on our everyday glasses. I used several different size fonts and some came out better than others. I had one where the etching cream bled under the vinyl and a couple of them I got the T on crooked, it isn't easy to get everything in line and correct on a non-flat surface.
I also tried a larger letter on a bottle that I use to store salad dressings. As you can see the etching cream was not placed on the glass consistently and the results were an inconsistency on the bottle.
Today I am etching four wine glasses to be included in a gift basket with some of our local wines. This small token of appreciate will go to a family who will host a dinner for all of us who will be working on the 2011 Habitat for Humanity project in New Orleans at the end of the month.
If any of you have some expertise with the Cricut I would love to hear from you, as you can see from my practice tries I can use any helpful hints you might have.
With some poetic license as to whether this is truly a metamorphosis or not I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.
