    Probably a really stupid question---but I would like to do shot glasses with the monogram we got from aylee. I know there is transfer paper for fabrics and that, but is there something similar for glass? I haven't really looked into this, but thought someone here would have an answer!

      i think i've seen some crafty home decorating shows (like design on a dime or trading spaces) do an etching type project where they did their own designs. but beyond that, i have no idea!

        I know there is something - search for etching paper. That might be what it's called.

          I think there is etching spray. You mask off negative spaces - say you want clear polka dots on your glass- place any kind of round stickers on the glass and then spray. Anything that isn't covered by the stickers will film over.

          Might be really cute with several sizes of circles. or even squares.

            Can you post a sample of your monogram? Depending on how detailed it is, you might be able to create a 1 or 2 layer stencil and use acrylic paint that is formulated for painting on glass. One color would be fairly simple, but 2 or more colors could be pretty difficult.

            I've never used it, so I don't know if it works, but I think what youneed is water slide decal paper. Here is a website where it talks about it.
            DecalPaper.com - Decals - Waterslide decal paper or inkjet,laser printers Alps & copiers

            I think it says 20 sheets for $14.95. And of course you can print A LOT of votive sized monograms with a single sheet of paper.

            Good luck!

              I know there is a paint/spray at Michael' Craft store. I got a shot glass at a wedding and she put their name and the date on it then baked it to allow it to set. I think it is great idea.

                I was thinking of etching spray, not paper. You could just do a stencil of your new last initial with the spray.
