Steps To Engrave On Glass At Home
Glass is one of the most beautiful materials to work with, and by engraving it, you can customize your things to be different and uniques. The best part is that it’s very easy to do and with just a few materials! Let me show you how with our new engraving pen.
Engrave glass with an engraving pen
1. Get to know the rotary tool
Even if you’re not new to engraving, when using materials like glass, it is better to try it out first, so we know what’s the best bit, (I recommend using the conical “pencil-tip” which is ideal for careful detail work) and how much pressure we have to use.
2. Choose your design
Once you’ve found the perfect design and the item to engrave, the pro-tip here is to tape it on the inside and start tracing carefully the design.
You can make so many designs and customize a lot of glass surfaces, this technique comes pretty handy when gift-giving.
1. Make a stencil
If you want to have a more precise finish, with a wide painter’s tape cover the design and make sure the pieces overlap. then cut out the inside of the design.
2. Outline your design
Once you carefully peeled the tape off the paper and placed it onto the glass, you can start tracing the outline to make it perfect.
