A New Find & Etching Glass

On one of my recent trips to our local Peddler’s Mall, I found these….

A set of four ice cream/sherbet glasses with our Monogram etched on it….

Aren’t they cute!
I got the set for $4.00!
I didn’t think a dollar each was too bad for personalized
ice cream glasses
I love the bottom!
I’m sure there’s a name for it,
but it look like little beads to me.

So you wanna come for ice cream?

Winking smile

Did you know you can etch your own glass?
Craft stores have glass etching compound and it’s really easy to use!
glass etching cream
Just tape on a stencil, brush on the compound (wear gloves, it’s seriously toxic!)..let the compound sit and wash it off and remove the stencil!

It’s that simple!
There’s a great tutorial on it
over at Create Studio,
you can see it here!
Have you guys found any treasures lately, or have you ever used etching cream?

Hope you have a GREAT day!

I haven't been out treasure hunting recently, but hopefully I'll luck out next time and find something as cool as you did! Love the little ice cream dishes.

I keep looking at the etching compound when I go to the craft store, but haven't yet had the guts to try it.

Missy, love those sherbert glasses and it is great they have your monogram on them!! I have used that glass etching product and it works great! Have a great day!

Fun glasses!

I have been wanting to try the etching cream, but I'm too scared! Eek!

This is SO weird...I was getting ready to send you a link that had that EXACT etching goo in it. They used the silhouette to make tags on re-purposed glass jars for the pantry. The etched lables looked so very pretty! I recently found the 6 sherbert glass to match my odd set of five at GW! I love love the base of yours! GREAT find girlie!

Great finds! It's hard for me to tell from the photos~ are there glass balls around the base? It is probably Imperial Candlewick. How fun that it had your initial!
