  • Take drinking glasses up a few notches by etching something personal onto them. You will need Armor Etch, an Exacto knife, masking tape, and a set of plain beer or cocktail glasses. One option would be to tape a stencil to the outside of the glass wherever you want the shape or letter to go. Put on gloves, dip a paintbrush into the Armor Etch, and apply a coat onto the stencil. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes, and then wash off the etching cream and peel off the tape and stencil. You can also use the Exacto knife to cut out a shape, sports logo, or anything they might like out of thick paper and tape it to the glass. Make sure the paper isn’t too thin or the Armor Etch may go through the paper.
