How to use etching cream
Do you have a running list of projects that you want to try...just because? Maybe because it looks interesting, or fun, or challenging...or maybe you're just curious.
Of course you do! You're a DIYer...a crafter...a dreamer...a creator!!
One of the things on my very, VERY long list is glass etching. So a couple of weeks ago I picked up a very inexpensive olive oil bottle with a spout for dish soap.
You will need a pack of sticky alphabet letters - you will find them at Westpack - Lifestyle, craft or stationery shops.
Apply the letters down the middle of one side and then used masking tape to tape off a rectangular area around the letters.
Brush on a thick layer of etching cream over the letters and up to the masking tape.
Leave the etching cream on in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions - normally around 5 minutes.
To neutralise the etching cream, rinse under running water.
If you find that the letters are very faint you can repeat the process until you are happy with the final result.
