Since we’re in the Christmas month, I figured I would show you a sample of etching a Christmas based theme. I showed this example on another craft site a few weeks ago, and figured I would share it here as well. This is very simple and I will show you some more advanced examples soon.
Below is a picture by picture example tutorial with the very basics. If you have an intricate design that you have to cut for a stencil, you can have me do it for you by writing a interesting project idea on your blog and link to my site. I will ship it to you free of charge. Just see my requirements to get a free stencil: http://www.glassetchingsecrets.com/freestencils.html.
Step one is to cut out a stencil, place it on the glass, and mask the edges:
Step two is to etch the glass evenly:
Step three, observe the glass, making sure it is etched at all areas, and then remove the stencil:
Step four, clean up any left over adhesive from glass, wipe clean, and flip the glass over to observe the etched areas. Also, you can etch the glass from the front side, but I chose to etch it from the back. Remember, if you etch it from the back, make sure you flip the stencil design. This can easily be done with computer software.
If you have any question, please feel free to leave a comment and I will answer you as soon as possible. Seasons Greetings everyone! I will be posting another example with sandcarving basics.
