Small container to hold etching cream
Glass Item (In this case, a plate)
Armor Etching Cream
Turn plate over ( you should be working on the bottom of the plate)
Anchor the Stencil in place with the Painter's Tape on the flate side of the plate.
Be careful not to cover parts you intend to etch
Pour your etching cream into your container
Using your spong brush, "paint" the area of the stencil with the etching cream
Remember to cover every area of the glass item you want etched.
Take care to not allow your stencil to move.
If this happens, cream will etch areas that weren't supposed to be covered.
Etching cream is not forgiving. Once it touches and area, it is there to stay.
VERY IMPORTANT! allow the area you have etched to stand for a few minutes.
Do not remove the stencil.
This will allow the cream to bond to the item you are etching.
Allow the cream to set for about 5 to 7 minutes.
Take a warm cloth and remove the etching cream.
Remove your stencil
Run the plate under warm water to remove remaining cream
Don't be alarmed if you don't see anything, your item is etched.
Dry the plate
Embellish if desired
