MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill., July 28, 2005 – Adding an elegant scroll design to an antique breakfront or an intricate vine to a windowpane is a simple task with a Dremel. Using a Dremel rotary tool makes it easy and fun to dress up glass and create unique home decorations that can’t be found on store shelves.
“Dremel allows homeowners and artisans alike to tap into their creativity to dress up the décor in their homes,” said Andrea Ash, director of marketing communications for Dremel. “With projects like glass etching, a whole world of opportunity is opened up for the imaginative artisan.”
To decorate a piece of glass, first find or design a print to be transferred to the glass. Secure a glass pane over the copied or drawn design. Using a Dremel rotary tools, such as the Dremel 400 Series XPR (SRP $79-$149) or Dremel Lithium-Ion Cordless (SRP $69- $79), carefully etch out the design with small strokes. Dremel accessory bits for glass etching include carbide cutters, diamond wheel points and silicon carbide grinding stones, which are great for covering large areas quickly and give glass a much desired frosted appearance.
Don’t forget to be creative. Use scrap glass to try out different genuine Dremel accessories to explore the various effects prior to using the application on your final work area. The application can be used on windows, glass panes set in furniture, vases, mirrors, drink ware and even glass bottles.
