Etching Test Results

Good evening. I've got those test results I was telling you about earlier. First of all, the stained glass paint that I tried out yesterday is not dishwasher safe. It seemed permanent when I scratched it, but when the glass came out of the dishwasher, the paint was nowhere to be found. The good news about that is that if I make a glass for a candle holder or something that doesn't go in the dishwasher, I can start over if I mess it up.

The next test involved etching on a regular ceramic coffee mug that has a glossy finish. I had never thought it was possible until I saw it on someone's blog Friday night. Here's the result.

Tada! It looks a lot brighter because of the flash on the camera. It looks like a regular etching in person. I picked this black coffee mug up for a dollar at Big Lots yesterday. I have several precut fleur-de-lis images, so I just used one of those to test this out. I've decided to give this away in a very interesting way. I've got several people from work who visit my blog regularly and most (if not all) of them really like fleur-de-lis. I am going to give this coffee mug to the first person from my company who leaves a comment on this post. I'm pretty sure I know who's gonna win, but I may be surprised. I gotta let Jason do his homework now. Yall have a good evening!

Is it me? But since I don't drink coffee, please let the second person who comments have the coffee mug. It's very pretty - I like it. If no one else from work comments, then I'll pick a winner for you!

How was your birthday? You didn't blog about your weekend birthday activities.

Ok, since Meredith doesnt drink coffee, and I do, maybe, just maybe, I can be the winner. I really think the mug is nice.
