I haven't posted many of the Christmas gifts I've been working on, but my father- and mother-in-law flew into town over the weekend and we exchanged gifts, so showing my first attempt at glass etching won't ruin any surprises.
This was SO EASY to do! I used my old Silhouette and some dollar store contact paper to make a stencil, stuck it to the side of a new Pyrex baking pan with lid, and painted on a good coating of glass etching cream. I waited about 20 minutes, rinsed off the cream, pulled off the adhesive stencil, washed the pan and done. It isn't perfect, as you can see in the second K pictured above, but I will be making more of these for Christmas gifts and later on just for fun.
I chose a 9 x 13 inch pan and found making a stencil with lettering that spanned an 1.5 x 10 inch area worked nicely. I etched "Made with love in" on one side of the pan, and "Kimberly's Kitchen" on the other side. The font is Subway.
It's official: I love etching cream!
