Dremel Multitool Workshop
This weekend, the DIY Divas in Randpark Ridge hosted a Dremel Tools Workshop. The ladies attending made a selection of wood and glass engraved projects.
The Dremel Multitool is a versatile craft, hobby and DIY tool that can be used for a variety of tasks. With a wide range of accessories and attachments that can be used in conjunction with the Multitool, you can use it to sharpen, grind, sand, cut and engrave on various materials.
Below we offer step-by-step instructions for making your own engraved glass Valentine's Day gifts.
Using a Dremel Multitool and silicon carbide grinding stone (84922)) we engraved hearts on small, glass storage jars to give as gifts or keep.
The next project was to engrave a Valentine's message on glass mugs.

It's so easy to engrave on glass items using a Dremel Multitool. For this project we purchased small glass containers and glass coffee mugs.
The easiest way to transfer a design onto glass, especially if you are not good at drawing, is to print out a design from the Internet. The printed design is stuck onto the inside of the jar or container with sellotape.
GOOD TO KNOW: If you need to press the design firmly against the front of the glass, pack with tissue paper.
Working with smooth strokes from left to right, and turning the glass container as you work, outline the design and then fill in any detail.
To make the design stand out we filled the engraved areas with red permanent marker. Use tissue paper to wipe off before the ink has time to dry.
If you struggle to follow the design simply by taping down, outline with a permanent marker, remove the design and follow your pen lines. The marker can be removed with tissue paper and mineral turpentine.
We used the same method above to engrave on our glass coffee mug.
