A NOVEMBER ENGRAVING WORKSHOP has just been booked. November 12, 13, 14. See details on our site.
Prices are lower. Some options you haven’t had before. Final chance to be ready to earn extra cash for the Christmas season. Yes….you learn by doing over a dozen projects in the Workshop. You’ll be ready to do similar, simple layouts and personalize a long list of Christmas gift items that will come to you.
You’ll learn how I do huge bottles like this 9 liter (full case of 12 bottles in this one!) and you’ll see how it’s done in a couple of ways.
Note how I have my sofa cushion and a small engraving pillow to brace my arm and hand as I engrave this one.
The finished 9 liter bottle is on the photo table with a regular size bottle at its side for scale. The big boy is a gift to a couple of ladies opening a new franchise business in the metroplex. The layout and engraving….which students learn to do… even on this size bottle, is a part of the process.
The layout and engraving took about 3 hours start to finish. I used a #4 round carbide for the individual lines with a #6 round carbide for larger first letters starting each verse. A #3 was used on the bottom 4 lines and a #2 was used for my signature and web address on the back side.
BELOW: Learn to become comfortable with the drill working on flat glass during most of the first day. You’ll do all the letters, numbers, and punctuation. Learn about spacing and bur size for various size letters. You learn how to prepare inexpensive sheets of flat glass for guidelines and spacing of the letters.
Below, a Lubbock, Texas, student shows only 7 of the 12 or more items she engraved from scratch in class. This was totally new to her; the work shows how quickly she learned and was able to create the engraving on the project items.
Below are the small candle holders each student did in this September Workshop. Remember, these were NEW students…and each learned the technique in 3 days.
The November session begins the evening of November 11 and ends around 5:00 on the 14th. To enroll and get your Student Packet with the alphabet sheets to learn the letters in advance, call me at 214.250.6958. DETAILS ABOUT THE PRICES AND WORKSHOP.
