An old engraving I did on a mirror with a modified dentist drill. Sorry about the poor photo but it is hard to photograph a mirror. Thanks for looking, Sandy

Mal, this is wonderful. I have never seen engraving like this done with anything other than acid. You were very brave to do this piece. You did a great job :clap: :clap: :clap:

This is great.
You must have the patience of a saint.

I bet it felt strange when you did her teeth.

This must be your daughter at an early age, and what a great rendition. What a great thing if you photographed her now, looking into that mirror.

This is great Malarkey!

A few questions... How on earth did you manage to photograph a mirror??? :D and where did you get a dentist's drill?:D also, did you engrave the front or the back of the glass?

Thanks for the comments... I bought this drill so long ago I don't even remember the company name... Something I found in a Car and Driver magazine. the drill handle is about the size of a regular magic marker and the bits are the same ones used in dentist drills. The parts drilled is like sanded glass... it shows white , the front of the glass is drilled. When I did glass engraving, I did car windows, glass cabinet doors, gun cabinet doors (too many 8 point bucks) lol
