Just the facts, people. I saw on pinterest an awesome blog about etching using the Armour Etch cream. The blog was super complicated and discouraged me from actually trying it. I don't think it was her fault, she was highlighting a special ($300) crafting tool from her sponsor for the blog, so she wrote the blog around using the tool. My mom had a couple of bottles of Armour Etch at her house, so this weekend I took them home with me and decided to just follow the directions on the back of the jar.
It was much easier.
Glass to etch
A sticky stencil
Armour Etch Cream
The stencil is the trickiest part. There are three great options I've tried so far.
|Negative area cut out|
b) Peel N' Etch Stencils. These are pre-made stencils especially for use with the cream. You can get them in sheet form or already cut into shapes if you don't have a custom design in mind.
(1) Trace your design on to your sticky stencil, unless you're using a pre-made Peel N' Etch. Use an Xacto Knife to cut the design out.
(2) Apply the sticky stencil to your glass.
(3) Brush on a thick layer of Armour Etch
(4) Wait 10 minutes (I thought 5 was too short)
(5) Wash off with water, make sure there's no residue left
Ok, I'm off. Have a great night and as always, thanks for reading! Pin It
