Glass etching technique

Hi there,

I hope you're doing fine. It's been crazy here. I only work half time at the moment, and I have the impression that I have even less time for me than before...

Anyway, I'm following the last online class at online card classes. It's called 'A Cut Above' and it's all about die cutting, both traditional and with silhouette studio. This class is really awesome. The 'live' class is almost over, but you can still register and will have a lifetime access to it.

So, yesterday was our 4th wedding anniversary. I made a little search on the internet and found that it was the 'noces de cire'. I don't know how to translate that expression, but it leans to the symbol for the fourth anniversary is wax. So in addition to his present, I customized a candle for my husband.
I followed Kristina's tutorial from the class and created a monogram in silhouette studio. I cut it from vinyl and then used some etching cream.

You can see it better on this picture.

On the other side I put two hearts and it's says '4 years' below.

This project was fun, and I really like the subtle result.

Please leave a comment to say what you think about it.
