Other Supplies

Patterning tape, Brush basin or container for water, Paper towels, Rubbing alcohol

Instructions

  1. Remove hanger and cap from ornament and set aside
  2. Moisten paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe over entire ornament to remove any dirt or grease.  Allow to dry.
  3. To create the snowflake ornament, remove adhesive stencil from backing sheet and position on glassware where desired.  Press stencil firmly in place.  Save backing sheet for stencil storage when project is complete.
  4. Using patterning tape, create a protective area around the stencil edges to mask the glass surface NOT to be etched.
    • NOTE:  If etching cream touches an area unprotected, that area will be etched.
  5. To create stripes, use strips of patterning tape placed evenly around the entire ornament.  Make sure the edges of the tape are pressed down completely.
  6. To create the half frosted ornament, place patterning tape horizontally around the middle of the ornament. 
    Glass Etching Instructions:
  7. Apply a thick layer of etching cream over the open design areas using the natural bristle brush included with the Etching Cream.
    • NOTE: You may also use a palette knife or a handled squeegee to apply a liberal amount of etching cream.  Set project aside for 15 minutes.
  8. After 15 minute wait, rinse glassware under running water to remove all etching cream.  While under running water, remove stencil and stencil tape.
    • NOTE: It is best to wear protective gloves when working with etching cream.  Make sure that etching cream does not run over the edge of the design or spill on any areas that are not to be etched.
  9. Rinse stencils well, blot dry and return to backing sheet for storage.
  10. Dry etched glassware.
  • PROJECT TIP: Etching cream can also be used with Martha Stewart Crafts Adhesive Silkscreens.

The color of etching cream may change; it may deepen in value from a warm caramel color to a milk chocolate color as it is open to the air
