Etching Glass With Help From Stamps


This week we’re having so much fun etching on glass with Stampendous Stamps and Armour Etch Glass Etching Cream. We hope you’ll give this fun media a try. When you use it with stamps, it’s just such an exciting and different way to create beautiful, and useful, home decor!

Photographing glass is REALLY hard so I apologize :(

1.  Stamp letters from the Vintage Uppercase and Lowercase Perfectly Clear sets on to contact paper with Versafine ink in any color.  Heat set.
2.  Cut out the letters using an exacto knife.  Be careful not to smear the ink eventhough it was heat set.  I didn't use Stazon because I didn't want to stain my clear stamps. 

3.  The letters cut out can be thrown out, you will be using the negative of the letters.
4.  Place contact paper on your glass surface being sure to flatten all of the edges.

5.  Apply Armour Etch liberally with a foam sponge, leave on for 5 minutes and rinse of with warm water.
6.  Let dry, remove contact paper and you're done!

Be sure to stop by my blog tomorrow for another glass piece and it will be using a different technique :)

And, of course, there are our designers that are playing today! Go check out their projects, comment on their blogs, and you could win some etching supplies yourself! Remember to tell us in your comment where in the U.S. you’re writing from, only U.S. mailing addresses eligible to win.

Wonderful monogramming. Did I spell that right??? You did a magnificent job of cutting around the image with your craft knife. Don't think that is something I could do!
