I was hoping to put our “monogram”ish thing onto the sand ceremony vase thing….had a friend who was hoping she could get software to work on her Cricket to cut it out and etch it, but it isn’t compatible 🙁
Anyone have a method for putting a design onto glass – it is a little “busy” so I don’t see a way to cut it out by hand or paint it on…

The only way it would be remotely feasible to do that exact design is to get that cricket to work! I do a lot of hand-etching on glass and cutting those tiny designs into contact paper with a scapel would probably give me tendonitis! Another option would be to “simplify” it a bit by making the lines thicker so it could be hand cut into the contact paper. Other than that, maybe some sort of professional service could help you out. I really like your monogram by the way. I hope you get something to work for you!

@Eight6Eleven: That is kindof what I was thinking — we did a little when I was a kid and doing it with an exacto knife would be insane! 🙂
Any other options – I don’t really care if it is etched or transferred on in black or black/red…I just haven’t a clue!

You could try rub ons. I haven’t tried it on glass, but I’m sure it could work. Grafix has a product where you can make your own rub ons with your computer and printer. I used them on my unity candle and they worked awesome!

Have you considered using vellum paper? If its a very light weight vellum it will be look almost liket he design is on the glass

@Hurley_gurly9: I’ll take a look – thanks!
@bells: I would like something permanent that will “stand the test of time” 🙂 That is one of the reasons I wanted to do the sand ceremony, so we would have a permanent reminder on display!
