I have etched a Maori-Owl into a glass for mother´s day.
And here is the tutorial!
What you need:
Print the design onto the back of the selfadhesive film and cut it out.
Clean the glass and be sure that there are no fingerprints on it.
Place the film onto the glass. Press it on and remove all bubbles.
Apply a border of masking tape around the design.
This prevents the etching cream contacted with unwanted areas of the glass.
Attention! Read the instructions of your etching cream!
This is only an example of how to do with the cream I use!
The using of etching cream is only for adults!!!
(But you can use the designs from your children)
Be sure that there are still no fingerprints on the glass.
Pull the protective gloves over your hands.
Shake the cream thoroughly.
Work in a well ventilated area.
Apply a thick layer of etching cream with a paint brush on the glass.
Stay within the taped area.
Than I remove the cream with the paintbrush and I give it in a plastic container.
Remove the rest of the cream with a paper towel.
Wash off all the etching cream under luke warm water.
Now remove the masking tape and the selfadhesive film and wash the glass again.
Dry the glass and it is ready!
And here is my first etched glass: click!
