Title: Space Invader Etched Pint Glass
Date Completed: November 2012
Design: Lord Libidan
Video Game: Space Invaders
 
Having worked on my etched Pacman pint glass, I had another glass free, so working on eactly the same principle, I have a Space Invader attacking, whilst a gun defends against it. On the base of the glass are the words “GAME OVER” which you can see after finishing your drink.
As the Pacman glass was my first, I expected this one to be slightly clearer on the edges, however the glass etching cream worked its way under the tape and so its less neat (although hardly noticable).

I also created an etched Pacman pint glass at the some time.

Video Game: Pacman
 
Waga-waga! I’ve seen quite a few etched glasses over the years, and I’ve always wanted to try my hand, but was never able (its REALLY hard to find glass etching cream in the UK). I finally found some, and needed some interesting pint glasses to take to work. My intention was to make the glass look great from the front, however when I finally sat down and got to it, I realised a round the glass design would work best. The only thing I know that chases each other from video games was Pacman.
Around the glass is Pacman is eating pellets and in turn and chasing a ghost. Similarly the ghost is chasing Pacman.
I have a few pint glasses at home from varous beer companies and its common to have a message at the bottom of your drink so you can read it once you’ve finished. As a result I added “GAME OVER” in a pixelated font.
