Father's Day Personalized Engraved Pilsner Glass Tutorial Featuring The Proxxon Glass Engraving Kit

 Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by the Proxxon Tools blog today. Tammy here with a fun Father's Day project and review of the Proxxon Glass Engraving Tool
 When I received the glass engraving tool, it was packaged in a sturdy carrying case and had easy to follow directions. It also came with a practice glass to perfect my skills before making my Father's Day project. 
 The tool was so easy to use! I was able to create this cute bud vase on my very first attempt with the practice glass. 
I like it so much, I keep it on my desk!
After I was comfortable using the tool, I had my daughter draw this note to her dad for Father's Day and I etched it onto a pilsner glass with the Glass Engraving Tool.

How I did it:
1. My daughter used a Sharpie marker to write a note on a piece of copy paper. 
2. I placed the paper face side out on the inside of the glass and taped it to the glass.
3. I was able to easily trace the fine details of the drawing with the glass engraving tool, so it looks like she drew it on herself!

This would be a great gift for any dad that enjoys a cold beverage every once in a while, and you can easily trace any image with the tool so the possibilities are endless! I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use the Proxxon Glass Engraving Tool. It is becoming my new favorite tool for sure!

Supplies I used:
Pilsner glass from The Dollar Store
Sharpie marker

Let's be friends!
