I have been wanting to try to etch glass for a while now. The price of the etching cream is what has stopped me. I think it’s a little expensive, so I kept putting it off. I didn’t want to spend the money and then it not come out very good. Well…on Friday I received a coupon from Michael’s for 50% off, so Saturday morning I used that coupon for etching cream!!
I could not wait to try it out, so I etched a vase that I had hanging around the house. It came out pretty good. My only issue was that when I applied my vinyl stencil I forgot to use my transfer tape so the “P” is a little off, but you really can’t tell unless you actually stare at it and look for it.
I also etched my husband a candy jar to keep on his desk at work. I love how it turned out….I remembered my transfer tape this time.
Etched glass make the perfect gifts and I have a list of projects to complete for Christmas! I can’t wait to get them all done and show them off. I even received my first paid order yesterday. She said she doesn’t care what I make….she just wants something etched!
Have you ever etched glass before? Would you like to?
