Could you please elaborate a little about the glass etching process you have adopted with some information about the etching cream and afterwash used, etc.? My daughter-in-law was trying to execute a similar project last month, but could not achieve the desired results. Perhaps it can help her.
Glass etching doesn't work on all glass types (I think tempered/hardened glass can be problematic). I use a pink etching cream, according to the instruction you first have to clean the glass with a 70% alcohol solution. Apply your stencil, then you have to put on about 2mm thick layer of cream and let it sit for 7 minutes (this might be different for other brands, I've read about creams that need anywhere between 1 and 15 minutes). After that time I scraped off the excess cream to put back in the container, what was left I rinsed off, I peeled off the tape and vinyl and cleaned the glass with some dishwashing soap (as per instructions).

Thanks a ton for the advise!
I'll pass it on and see what outcome she achieves. I'll revert back soon after her experiments are over.

Very nice! Thanks for sharing it.

Sounds like a seriously painful development in the world of fingernail art.

What's the next new thing in body art, fragmentation grenades for that random piercing look?

I'll stick with my fake red nose, thank you.

Is she talking about stamping her fingernails or stamping with actual nails?

It's my birthday but I just cancelled all plans. I'm sure some of you are familiar with draught conditions of East Tennessee. Last night Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and some surrounding areas caught on Fire. The fire spread so fast due to hurricane force winds. Many Homes destroyed, some resorts and other buildings not to mention forests burned to the ground. Needless to say I'm devastated right now. Even closer to home in the same county I lived a wildfire burned 15 acres of forests.

My mom is very upset at me for cancelling but I just "can't" celebrate right now. I lived in Eastern Tennessee for seven years. It will always be my home, My People. My people are hurting right now therefore I hurt with them. They are forecasting more high winds late tonight. They need rain and they need alot of it and no wind.

Oh! I wasn't serious. I was thinking you meant something along the idea that Cinisajoy had or stamping metal with a hammer and die.

Is this more like an ink stamp?

Yes, you have a metal plate with one or more patterns, you apply a coat of nail polish to it. Then quickly scrape off the excess polish. You have the "stamper" which is rounded and use it to pick up the image and transfer it to your nail.

I ordered two plates and a stamper from AliExpress. It probably isn't the best quality, but it's cheap. If I don't like it I won't have thrown away a lot of money. If I do like it I can always invest in a better stamper.

I booked an paid for my parents' Christmas and birthday gift. Hopefully they'll like going away for a long weekend, despite the fact they said they wouldn't go on vacation until the Family Thing was over.

Which means that now I can start saving for a new laptop. Initially I had set a budget of €400; I don't use my laptop very often and mostly for surfing the internet and using Calibre. But I found a laptop for €479, which had an i3 processor instead of celeron. This would mean I could maybe use the laptop as Plex server when I'm on the go. Now I found another laptop, which has a newer processor (i3-6100U instead of i3-5005U), and it has a better graphics card. However, do I want to pay €600 for a laptop, is it worth the extra money? The only argument in favour of spending more is that the more expensive one can be used longer before it isn't adequate enough for my needs.
