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. This design needs to be done in stages. Place the octopus onto the glass in your desired location being mindful of the space requirements for the other design elements and words to come later. 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. Using a popsicle stick or other dull instrument, press the stencil 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. Place all the desired holiday elements to the glass. Turn the glass around so you are looking at the back of the octopus through the piece. With tweezers, place each element at the end of the tentacles.

10. Add all words to the glass as close to the octopus design as possible overlapping the edges where the letter stencils meet. If stencils protrude 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 the octopus and 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.

12. 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)

13. Leave the cream on for 5 minutes

14. 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.

15. Repeat steps 12 through 14 until all the desired design elements have been etched onto the glass.
