I just finished hand painting the new design for Vino Divino School of Wine. Robert's students spend a year's worth of time fermenting their own barrel of wine. I painted the same design in silver and one in gold like he asked, but for this one I wanted to give him something extra special to offer his customers for all their hard work. I deep etched the design and carefully applied the paint letting it sit within the thin lines of the design and dried it for 2 days.
Sorority Logo etched on a wine bottle and turned into a lamp.
I stopped by a friend's wood shop one day and saw him drilling into all kinds of wine and liquor bottles. When I asked him what he was doing, he told me he was making lamps out of them. I thought, "Wow, what a cool idea." My wheels started turning. I thought to myself, "Why not, take the label off and take it a step further... I can etch it too!" Have your logo etched on it for your restaurant. Maybe a design for your home bar or rec room.

Engraved wine bottle with New Home Template
I visited my cousin and her husband this weekend in Montreal, Canada. Not only was it my first visit to Canada, but it was my first visit to their new home. As like most, I wanted to bring a house warming present. I bought them a gift certificate to help them with furnishing their new home but wanted to add something a little more personal than a piece of plastic money. I bought a bottle of red wine, etched it with their names and a warm greeting and attached the gift certificate to the bottle. For me, it was giving them something practical to use and something that they could always look back on and remember the excitement of buying their first home together.
