Let's go - step by step
Designing the Engraving
You need: Marker, Ruler
Start by deciding on the design and placement of the engraving. Using a marker, lightly sketch a heart shape and the date on each champagne glass. You can also add any additional decorative elements if desired.
To ensure accuracy, use a ruler or measuring tape to mark the center of each glass. This will help you position the engravings symmetrically.
Engraving the Champagne Glasses
You need: Safety Glasses, Dust mask
Carefully follow the sketched designs, applying gentle and consistent pressure as you guide the DREMEL® Stylo+ along the lines. Take your time to ensure precision and avoid rushing the process.
The Diamond Wheel Point 2mm (7103) is perfect for creating fine and detailed lines. Keep the tool at a steady speed and let it do the work for you. Take breaks if needed to avoid overheating the tool.
Clean off the Marker
You need: A piece of cloth
After engraving, remove any pencil marks from the glasses. Wipe them clean with a soft cloth to remove any dust or debris.
Retouch the engraving
You need: DREMEL Stylo+ (2050-15), A piece of cloth
Once the engraving is complete, it's time to use the Diamond Wheel Point 4.4mm (7105), to retouch the engraving. The 7105 has a thicker point perfect for retouching the engraving. With this one you will be able to hide some imperfections and make the engraving more visible.
Take your time and follow the sketched designs. Keep the tool steady and let it go over the lines.
Clean it again with the cloth. Consider adding additional embellishments such as ribbons, bows, or charms to further personalise the glasses and match the wedding theme.
With this step-by-step guide, you can create elegant, engraved champagne glasses with a heart and the wedding date, making them a cherished keepsake of your special day. Enjoy the process of crafting these personalised glasses and raise a toast to love and happiness. Cheers to the newlyweds!
