Wine glasses


  1. Using Patterning Tape, tape off a design from the rim of the glass, down the body. Be sure to press the edges of the tape firmly onto the glass to release any air bubbles and to secure adhesion.
  2. Following the instructions on the bottle, apply a thick layer of the Etching Cream with a Brush by dabbing it on. You want the most coverage over the design, so best if you create an opaque layer of Cream.
  3. Wash off Cream after 15 minutes, and gently remove Tape to reveal your design.
