Let's Get Started

To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.

STEP 1

Before You Start, You’ll Want to Get This On Tape

Choosing the right design takes time, so don't let it get away from you! Simply print off a stencil design you like and secure it to the inside of the glass. This will allow you to keep the stencil in place as you trace the design onto your wine glass.

STEP 2

Trace Your Design

To make sure you get your engraving right the first time, trace your design onto the glass using an erasable marker. This will then serve as a guide to make the engraving even easier.Helpful Hint: A small piece of paper towel placed inside the glass will help you see the marks while engraving.

STEP 3

It’s Time to Lock it Down

If you like it then you should've put a clamp on it! Secure your wine glass to the surface you are working on to ensure it does not slip away and that your engraving is as accurate as possible. Think Smart Be Safe: Before engraving, ensure your wine glass is clean and dry. Wear eye goggles and a dust mask to protect yourself from any tiny glass shards that may get near your face.

STEP 4

Ready, Set, Etch!

Now you are ready to begin engraving your wine glasses! For your first time, take it slow and avoid applying too much pressure. Let the tool do the work for you! Simply glide the Stylo+ across the glass much like you would when writing with a pen! Start by engraving the outline of the design. From there, fill in your outline with extra shading to make your design really come to life. Helpful Tip: Always look straight on when engraving glass. Looking at an angle causes your lines to have a greater chance of becoming skewed.

STEP 5

Clean Up Before Your Drink Up

Once you finish etching, be sure to vacuum your workspace and wash your wine glasses to remove any lingering glass particles.

STEP 6

Add Even More Flavor

Looking to add even more of a personal touch to your wine glasses? Add your own personalized wine charms so you know whose drink is whose. We've partnered up with Sculpey to create DIY wine charms that complete the look of your etched wine glasses.
