Step 1: Clean glass with rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt or residue.
Step 2: Apply vinyl stencil and make sure inside edges are smooth and flat.
Step 3: Using disposable gloves to protect your skin, generously apply glass etching cream inside stencil.
Step 4: Leave etching cream on for 30 minutes. Optional: At the 15 minute mark, apply a second thin coat to help the product distribute more evenly.
Note that the instructions say 15 minutes, but the etching was very faint at that time marker.
Step 5: After 30 minutes, rinse etching cream off using gloved hands to help it along. I also took the safe route and placed a plastic bowl in my kitchen sink to protect the finish of my sink, then I poured the diluted cream and water straight down the drain.
Step 6: Peel off the vinyl stencil and use your cute new glass. It’s even dishwasher safe!
