Engraved Pint Glasses
It is a nice skill to have to know how you can engraved pint glasses. Engraving glasses of your own is actually an economical way of making a unique and great gift for your friend or loved ones or even as a personal collection. It seem to be a daunting task to do personal engraved pint glasses but in reality, the entire process is relatively simple.
What you need is to just gather the basic supplies like computer software, protective goggles and engraving tool and then, do the steps below.
Step number 1. Create a design for your glass by making use of computer software in order to design something that’s uniquely you. There are plenty of photo editing software that can be good for graphics as well as heavy designing and also, word processing software that’s perfect for text based designing. Opt for large sized font of the text design so it will be read and seen easily. When you’re through on the design, the next important thing to do is printing the size you prefer to be on the engraved pint glasses and then, cut off the excess around the design.
Step number 2. Place the printout inside of the pint glass and after that, tape it inside the wall. Be sure that the design is straight and also, in the position where you like it on the glass. Put a dark rag in the glass to be able to make the design stand out and to make it simpler to trace the design throughout the engraving process.
Step number 3. Now, you are all set to engraving. Wear safety glasses, turn on the engraving tool and then, set it to high speed. Until the engraving tool is at its maximum speed, make sure that you don’t touch the glass. Using the engraver like a pen, trace the design on the surface of the glass.
Number 4. With a damp rag, simply wipe off glass shavings in the engraved pint glasses you are working on. Excess moisture would interfere in your engraving process so make sure that the rag is not so wet.
The process may seem to be hard to look at first but once you start, it’ll take a little bit of getting used to and you are done. This will take a little bit of practice to perfect doing engraved pint glasses but you’ll get it in no time. If you wish to have engravings on your pint glasses, this is how it should be done.
