Etched Glass Designs

Have you ever wondered how to make your own etched glass creations? You can create beautiful glass etched designs with just a few handy tools, which include an X-ACTO knife, self-adhesive vinyl, and etching cream. You can find etching cream at your local craft store or online.

How to Create an Etched Glass Design

Create stencils by cutting out your design with your XACTO knife from self-adhesive vinyl. Then attach the vinyl design onto a prepped and clean glass surface. Keep in mind, wherever your vinyl is placed on the glass, it acts like painters tape would act to a wall. It prevents the etching cream from touching the glass and makes a perfect stencil to work with. You can find etching cream at your local craft store or online.

Once your cut-out vinyl design is adhered to your glass, brush on a thick layer of etching cream to set. Follow the manufacturers directions for timing and full directions. When the etching cream has set, and you have rinsed it off the glass, remove your vinyl stencil. What you are left with is a beautiful etched glass design!

Use etched glass to create personal homemade gifts or help organize glass kitchen containers.
