  1. I recently started following your site and am a fan! Wanted to see if you would be open to test out my glass etching supplies for free in exchange for feedback. Can you let me know if you are interested by email? Shipping of the supplies will be free as well. Urgently, waiting for your reply. I would really appreciate it Eric
