#08- 9999 Gloves.

#08- 9415 Masking tape.

Soft paper towels.

Optional:

Tweezers, ruler, exacto knife and water soluble marker

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.

.4 Cut off the words MY DOG from the I love my dog stencil. Place the I (heart) into the desired location. Remove the border edge from one of the stencil sheets. Using the border edge, make a rectangle on the glass around the I (heart) big enough for empty space to be surrounding them.

5. Remove the letters M and Y from the Reverse Mr. & Mrs. Sheet and place them in the center of the heart. Tweezers are helpful with this. Press them down gently but firmly with a clean gloved finger.

6. 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's design, etch them individually, one at a time.

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

8. 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.

9. 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)

10. Leave cream on for 5 minutes

11. 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.

12. 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.

13. Repeat steps 7 through 11 until all desired design elements have been etched onto the glass

Additional Materials

Directions

  1. This design was etched in stages. The technique allows you to use a particular stencil image multiple times on the same project when you don't have enough to etch all simultaneously. Some stencils were cut to make this design.
  2. After preparing the glass, start at the bottom of the mug with the bone and the dog.
  3. Follow the etching cream instructions to etch these.
  4. Look through the back of the mug and place the small bone above the dog followed by the letters for dog. Get the letter D as close to the small bone as possible.
  5. Follow the etching cream instructions to etch these onto the glass.
  6. Look through the back of the glass and place the border stencil with all the circles vertically next to the little bone and the dog as close as you can get them. Cover the circles that go higher than the small bone with masking tape.
  7. Follow the etching cream instructions to etch the balls onto the glass.
  8. Cut the words my dog off the bottom of the I love my dog stencil and round the edges of the I love. Place this above the bone and dog. Leave room for a border to be placed around.
  9. Make a box around the I love stencil by making a frame out of pieces of the border edge from a stencil sheet. Leave space between the stencil and the edge pieces.
  10. Place the word my inside the heart. Tweezers help.
  11. Put the double paws stencil vertically next to the box.
  12. Follow the etching cream instructions to etch these.
  13. Above the box and paws, place the double paw stencil horizontally . Place the circle stencil as close to it as possible and cover the unwanted parts with masking tape.
  14. Etch these onto the glass.
  15. Finish the design by placing the paw, big bone and dog head into position as pictured.
  16. Etch these onto the glass.
