If your final etched, glasswear is coming out blotchy, it could mean that either that (1) you didnít apply a thick enough layer of Armour Etching Cream in a patting motion, or (2) the cream needs to sit on the glass a little longer before rinsing it off.
One way you can fix this is by using our Rub Ní Buff in white. Rub Ní Buff is a wax cream that only appears on etched regions on the glass, giving the etched designs color. When using the white Rub N' Buff, it can give off the same appearance that etching cream gives off. If you place Rub Ní Buff to a blotchy, etched region of glass, you can correct the project to make it look like it was a solid etching cream project. To see the difference, look at the images on the left.
However, please keep in mind that this a temporary glass coloring method, whereas Armour Etching cream is a permanent etching method. This is important to note because, with time, and multiple washes, the Rub Ní Buff may begin to wear away. Although, there is an easy way around this. Firstly, wash gently by hand rather than putting the project with Rub Ní Buff into the dishwasher. Secondly, if you notice the Rub Ní Buff begins to fade, all you have to do is reapply it. There is an unlimited amount to time that you can reapply the Rub Ní Buff. In the following section, we will review tips and techniques for apply Rub Ní Buff to get the most out of this product.
The first tip is that this product works in the same way the titles states, rub and buff. To start off, get a cue tip and apply a delicate amount of the rub n buff cream on it. First, tap the cream around the design to evenly distribute the wax. Then, using the same cue tip, gently rub it over the designs. Take your time and go in little circles over the designs a few times. Donít worry if you get a little excess on a non-etched region because the wax will only set in etched regions. After waiting a few moments, grab a thin napkin and being buffing around the design gently. Donít apply to much pressure, because you donít want to remove all the wax from the glass. When finished, take one thin napkin again, and go around the edges to remove the excess of wax from around the design.
If it is still a little blotchy, you can repeat the steps one more time with a concentration in the blotchy area.
