Glass etching turns out to be super simple to do! What a treat!
I recently made two glasses quickly and easily: one with a floral design and one with "Balzer Designs" in my handwriting.
Here's what you need:
I cut my shapes from adhesive-backed vinyl using my ScanNCut (but, of course, you could also hand cut the vinyl). Whatever is exposed (i.e. not covered) will be etched.
I was careful to wrap my whole glass so I didn't accidentally get any drips or drops.
I applied the Armour Etch using a foam brush (which I threw away afterwards). The Armour Etch only takes one-minute to work! You should wear plastic gloves and be sure to apply the cream in a well-ventilated area as it's a serious chemical. After the minute was up, I rinsed my glasses and peeled off the vinly and voila!
Pretty magical! And the hardest thing about this project? Taking the photos! (Seriously hard to photograph etched glass.) In any case, I look forward to trying out some more glasses and maybe even a window! (One of the many reasons I can't wait to be a homeowner -- biggest craft project ever!!!)
Thanks for stopping by!
