    The drawing IS good though regardless of what bad cooments some people decide to write on here.

  37. Thanks! Using this even I was able to draw a pretty rose. I drew it on paper first and traced it on to the glass in a picture frame, which was “etched” using a dremel tool. Mounted together with a red led it makes a perfect valentine gift.
