Give your musical mates an offbeat, yet practical, gift they will treasure forever! Our 6 inch ruler makes a perfect double-entendre to show your music lover how they "measure" up in your esteem. Great for graduations, teacher gifts and stocking stuffers!



Materials:

#15-0200 Armour Etch Glass Etching Cream.

#21-1671 Over N Over stencil-MUSICAL NOTES

#21-1645 Over N Over stencil-REVERSE MR. MRS.

#29-2401 BEVEL GLASS RULER

#08- 9606 Brushes.

#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. Place the large musical note in the center of the ruler. 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. Remove the monogram letter you want from the Reverse Mr. & Mrs. sheet and place it in the center of the note. Tweezers are helpful with this. Press them down gently but firmly with a clean gloved finger.

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. Place the musical score stencil on the ruler. Keep design area on the flat top area only. It will cover the design you just made. If you prefer, the stencil can be cut and placed on either side of the center musical note.

11. Once stencil is laid out straight, cover the center musical note you just etched with masking tape. Be sure to cover enough to give a small gap between the musical score and the center note.

12. Using a popsicle stick or other dull instrument, press the stencil and masking tape down gently but firmly to prevent the cream from getting underneath during etching.

13. Repeat steps 7 through 9 until all desired design elements have been etched onto the glass
