This lovely goblet shaped glass is part of a Tulip shaped range of glasses that I thought were lovely. I have etched this one with a Fleur de Lys design a lovely swag below it.
The glass measures approx. 19cm/7.5" high and 7cm/2.8" wide.
The etching is permanent and the glass is therefore safe to either handwash or place in the top rack of a dishwasher.
At the moment, my etching is done with a stencil and etching cream. I am gradually getting to grips with hand engraving glass, using an electric engraving pen, and I am looking forward to introducing this, and eventually incorporating my Calligraphy to personalise items, as both skills grow.
Please excuse the terrible photographs, I am hoping to get a polarizing filter for my camera, to enable me to take better photographs of glass, as I find lighting and showing the etched detail, very hard at the moment, hence the black insert to highlight the pattern better.
