Etching is an easy and inexpensive way to add new life to glass. Try it on windows, mirrors or glass front cabinets.Remember safety first.

Etching cream is toxic. Wear safety glasses, long sleeves and rubber gloves when working with this cream.



Clean and dry your glass so that it is completely clear of dust, dirt or grease.



If you would like a design on your glass cut stencils from contact paper and apply them directly to the glass making sure to press the edges firmly so you get a nice crisp result.



I just want to etch the glass insets for these cabinet doors so I don’t need a stencil. paint the etching cream onto your glass in a thick even coat with a paint brush.



The cream will need to sit for five minutes or so to react with the glass.



When the time is up, wash the cream completely away with water and a clean sponge.



That is all there is to it, a great new look with a small investment of time and money.
