I was hoping to do this post on in one but the second portion was a big fail so here is part 1 and part 2 will hopefully come soon!
My kids and I LOVE these for cold drinks - it keeps ice cold all day! Look at how nice the paint on this newer one is.
The picture isn't as nice after it has been used a lot!
One day I came across a blog post someone did about "etching" their child's name on things like this. It looked very cool, easy to do, and permanent. Of course, I can't remember what was used to do the "etching" so part 2 will hopefully be about how I made these cool again. This post covers how to get the old paint off to make it look like a new product (even though it will not be a Spongebob cup anymore).
I simply used a paint remover, soft scrubbing pad, paint brush and rubber gloves.
|I found this cute little bottle in the |
model car section of a craft store.
Here's what I ended with when I was done.
Now hopefully I will figure out my next step to personalize these for my little ones. I have figured out that the etching cream for glass is not the same cream that was used in the blog I read - LOL!
