Let's go - step by step

Step 1 4

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.

You need: Safety Glasses, Dust mask

Now it's time to use your DREMEL® Stylo+ and Diamond Wheel Point 2mm (7103) to engrave the heart shape and date on the glasses. Put on your safety goggles and dust mask for protection.

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.

Step 3 4

Clean off the Marker

Using a piece of cloth to remove marks from the champagne glass

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.

Step 4 4

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.

While the DREMEL® Stylo+ and Diamond Wheel Points 2mm (7103) and 4.4mm (7105) are recommended for optimal results, you may use other suitable tools. Ensure the tools you choose offer precision control and are suitable for engraving glass.

Champagne glasses can be found at home goods stores, online marketplaces, or even local thrift shops. Look for glasses with a smooth surface and sturdy construction.

Absolutely! Let your creativity shine and engrave other designs that hold special meaning for the couple. Consider using initials, symbols, or motifs that are significant to the wedding or the couple's relationship.

To preserve the engraving, it is best to hand wash the glasses using mild soap and warm water. Avoid using abrasive materials or harsh chemicals that may damage the engraving. Dry the glasses gently with a soft cloth.

Yes! You can further personalise the glasses by adding paint, glitter, or other embellishments to the engravings. Use non-toxic and food-safe materials if the glasses will be used for drinking.
