Spice up your Spooky Season with the official holiday treat of Ichabod Crane, Pumpkin Bread Men! Make one for every member of the family and fill with candy for a gift that's all treats and no tricks. Move over Gingerbread, it's pumpkin season!

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 or china pencil (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. Measure the body part of the gingerbread man. Place the empty pumpkin shape onto the glass in a location that leaves enough room under it for the body you just measured. 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. Choose the facial features you want and place them into the empty pumpkin stencil.

4. Using a popsicle stick or other dull instrument, press the stencils down gently but firmly to prevent the cream from getting underneath during etching.

5. Cover all the glass around the stencils with masking tape, overlapping all edges. Rub and press the tape down securely. 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.

6. 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)

7. Leave the cream on for 5 minutes

8. 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.

9. Wipe design area with glass cleaner. You may want to redraw centerline on the back of the project again. Place the gingerbread person shepe under the pumpkin head so that the body is directly below the pumpkin. Add any embellishment stencils into the body.

10. Remove the letters necessary for the name you want to use. Place them onto the glass in the desired location, overlapping the edges as you go. If stencils overlap into each other's design, you can trim with a scissor or etch them individually, one at a time. Etching one at a time is the preferred method over extensive cutting.

11. Cover all the glass around the stencils with masking tape, overlapping all edges. Cover the heads and all previously etched areas securely with masking tape. Rub and press the tape down securely. 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.

12. Repeat steps 6 through 9 until all desired design elements have been etched onto the glass
