Yesterday we attended the beautiful wedding of a young lady from our church. For our gift, we decided to be a little creative and etch a glass bowl and dish for the couple. I was delighted to try this out; I love making wedding gifts. Since we have supplies left over, I can etch our own dishes as well.
I used the tutorial here (link). Be warned though, that Armour Etching Cream will *not* work on Pyrex. The instructions specify this. I etched on four separate dishes and they all turned out beautifully except for the Pyrex dish.
Reading instructions. . . It's a really simple process!
I created some designs and transferred them onto the sticky-backed vinyl.
Making them bolder with a sharpie. As you can see, Mama also bought some letter stencils which were a great blessing to have.
Applying the stencils with a credit card (or an expired gift card :))
The highly toxic etching cream. It's hard to get a good thick layer, but that's what you need for even etching.
Wait 10 minutes, then rinse. Here's the result!
I've blurred out the family name for privacy.
A very useful skill, no? :)
