Sandblasted Champagne Bottle
For this engraved Veuve Clicquot wedding champagne bottle, I placed the names within the silhouette of the couple. By using this reverse etching technique, it allows the names to pop forward the deeper I engrave the couple. Running your fingers over it, you can actually feel the raised effect. It also gives a nice contrast to the rest of the text.
