Happiness is in the Journey

Whether you hike, bike, trod or trek, any wilderness wanderer will tell you this is true. Happiness is in the journey. This serene scene of biking through the woods captures the joy of exploring open nature. We used a glass slab for this design but it would be amazing on a window or a large platter.

DIRECTIONS:


1. Wash the item to be etched in hot, soapy dishwater and dry with a soft paper towel then wipe down design area with glass cleaner.

2. You may want to mark the centerline of your item before you begin. With a ruler and a water soluble marker (not a sharpie) draw the centerline on the back side of the item. This makes it easier to create your design in the location you want it on the project.

3. Apply any lettering or word stencils first, overlapping the edges where they meet. Avoid touching the sticky side of the stencil as oils from your hands can interfere with adhesion. Using a tweezer to hold stencil while deciding on placement location can help with this. If stencils overlap into each other?ɬ???ج?s design, you can trim with a scissor or etch them individually, one at a time.

4. Place the birch trees stencil on the far right above the lettering and after etching the bottom of the trees, turn the stencil upside down and match up the branches to make the top of the trees. Place the bike and the mountains into their location before the rest of the woods and deer. You can use parts of a stencil design by covering over the unwanted design features with masking tape or by trimming the stencil with scissors. If stencils overlap into each other?ɬ???ج?s design, you can trim with a scissor or etch them individually, one at a time.

5. Using a popsicle stick or other dull instrument, press the stencil down gently to prevent the cream from getting underneath during etching.

6. Cover all the glass around the stencils with masking tape, overlapping all edges. Check for exposed spaces by turning the project over and holding up to the light. Cover enough area so that none of the rinse water will touch any of the other glass while rinsing as even the small amount of etching cream in the water will permanently haze the glass.

7. Put on the rubber gloves. Load the brush with Armour Glass Etching cream. PAT the etch cream onto the stencils (do not brush it on). Apply a thick enough layer of cream to the exposed design area that you can no longer see through it. (View the directions HERE)

8. Leave the cream on for 5 minutes

9. Completely rinse off the etch cream under gently flowing temped water. Remove the stencils and masking tape and rinse again. Pat the stencils dry and return to the carrier sheet.

10. Wipe design area with glass cleaner. You may want to redraw centerline on the back of the project again. Arrange all other design elements into their desired location. You can use parts of a stencil design by covering over the unwanted design features with masking tape or by trimming the stencil with scissors. If stencils overlap into each other?ɬ???ج?s design, etch them individually, one at a time.

11. Repeat steps 5 through 10 until all desired design elements have been etched onto the glass
