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. Trim around the pumpkin shape with a scissor or hobby knife. Place the trimmed shape onto the glass in the desired location. 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 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.
3. Choose 2 pumpkin faces from the Pumpkin Faces sheet. Place one of them inside the pumpkin shape and the other somewhere outside the pumpkin shape. Trim the spooky face stencil from the Halloween sheet into a circular shape and place onto the glass.
4. Using a popsicle stick or other dull instrument, press the stencil down gently but firmly to prevent the stencil from lifting and sand getting underneath during blasting Remember, any exposed area will be etched by the sand.
5. Remove sand blasting supplies from package. Put on gloves. Follow the directions included with your sand etching tool to etch your design onto the glass. (To view a sand etching tutorial video click HERE)
6. Completely rinse off the sand residue under gently flowing temped water. Remove the stencils and masking tape and rinse again. Pat the stencils dry and return to the carrier sheet.
7. Repeat steps 4 through 6 until all desired design elements have been etched onto the glass
