The polka dots add a funky flair to vintage glasses.
Beautiful vintage glasses.
Adhesive vinyl was used for the design.
Etching cream gives you a permanent design that wont wash off...ever!

Whether fancy and vintage or new and simple...glassware can be given a fabulous fun flair with a bit of etching.  Acid etching makes a permanent design that you won't have to worry about scratching, peeling, or washing off.  With these glasses I used adhesive vinyl to outline polka dots on the glasses...combining a touch of funky with their vintage appeal.  Simply brush on, wait 5 minutes and rinse off.  EZ PZ !!
