Hi, friends! I feel like yesterday was hump day of the ‘ol 12 Days of Projects and we’re keepin’ on truckin’ with Day 7. Today I want to share a fun project that is really super easy and quick and has … lots of possibilities. I say that a lot, don’t I. 🙂 But anyone who appreciates hard-core etching, like sandblasting done by Leandra Drumm, will appreciate the simplicity of this technique. We’re going to use a product called Armour Etch to create some customized glassware.
Stencil (preferably peel and stick)
Step 1. Prepare your stencil and adhere it to the glass. Peel and stick stencils are great because they allow less seep on the edging of the stencil and produce a cleaner line.
Step 2. Open the Armour Etch and using your brush, dab on the etching cream to the etching area.
Step 3. Wait. The instructions say 1 minute, but I feel like 5 minutes gives it a denser result. About 3 minutes in, move the etching cream around to make sure it’s spread evenly on the stencil.
Step 4. After 5 minutes are up, wash the glass/stencil in warm water in the sink.
Step 5. Remove your stencil and voilå – you have etched glassware customized how you want!
Maybe use your initials or a favorite symbol or create a collection with a theme like game night, etc. Whatever you do, have fun!
