I already chucked it. It was just a test. As soon as I get one I like, I'll post a pic.

Latex frisket. Latex frisket. Latex frisket.

And you can get it from Dick Blick.

I picked up some of that etchant from Michael's and played with it. I got the cream, not the liquid "dip," and it resulted in a nice, light etch on my test tumbler. Both Contac paper and latex frisket worked well as masks. Thanks for the tip, Strom.

"Oddly enough, they have plastic ice-cream sundae glasses at Target that are inadvertantly dose-marked. It's a mighty big glass of absinthe, tho..."

Dammit, why is it that the only ones onto this are Pataphysician and me?

Two words: TARTAN GOBLETS.

The 'dose', measured by the bottom ring, is a generous 1.25 fl. oz. or so... filling to the second ring gives you about a 4:1 ratio.

Made by Furio, sold by Target...

Oh, the horror... just tried searching Target's site and couldn't find them. Discontinued?

It's sad. They were reasonably attractive and cheap.

I think one of the easier ways to etch glass is using a parafin mask. You simply need to score the wax around the circumference of the glass.

A thick coat of permanant ink marker works as an etchant resist, and can be removed with nail-polish remover when youre done.

It works for circuit boards and metal, anyway...

we just picked up a sweet li'l pastis glass on sale at Z Gallerie in Vegas. But the dose mark is 50/50. No stem though so we just got one as a novelty.

Good ideas. You might try experimenting with some heavy, adhesive vinyl as a mask. Then you could be imprecise in applying the chemical and still get a good result. I'd be interested to know how it turns out for you.

Borrow a surface gage or height gage from a machinist or model maker to mark your dose line, makes for a even mark everytime.

I've seen glass etching kits at Michael's (Local chain craft store) I was thinking about trying it myself.

I figured I'd dip a string into the etching chemical and carefully wrap it around the outside of the glass. Another way would be to use a turntable like for painting pottery and simply apply using a brush. I figured I'd practice on a glass I didn't care about first.

Almost any art-glass house can do it. I used to work for one in California (I'll be glad to give info, if wanted). If your phone book doesn't list any art-glass places, you can try looking for someone who does crystal repair, or check out your local trophy shop. It doesn't matter whether they do acid-etching or sandblasting -- the result will be the same. The problem is that the etching can be costly.

Here is what I used as a replacement. It's a nice glass, but not really an absinthe glass.

Yup.. I have those very same glasses which I use every day. Their only drawback is that they require a fairly long spoon. The La Fee spoon fits, as do, obviously, the Cuilleres #1 and #8.

Here's a nice glass that you can pick up at your local Pottery Barn (ugh!). I bought a couple a while back, and they make great absinthe glasses. They're blown glass, not pressed, and very heavy. There's a link below for purchasing sets of 6, but if you have a store near you, you can purchase them seperately. Someone has a website up somewhere selling absinthe spoons & glasses, and they are selling these exact same glasses for $25!!!
