DIRECTIONS:  

Wash and completely dry wine glass.

Choose a stencil with a design that you like. Keep in mind that the vase is a curved surface and how your design will look. The sample used a small Hibiscus stencil. You will do one section of the wine glass at a time.

Trace just small parts of the design at a time onto the etchmask. For example, just trace the flower, then parts of the stem and leaves.. Cut design from the etchmask, leaving at least a 1.5” border area all around. Position one of the stenciled etchmask onto the glass. Remove the backing and adhere to the vase. Smooth out any air bubbles.

Use a swivel blade craft knife to cut out the design from the mask. The swivel blade will give you cleaner cuts, especially around curves and tight corners. Remove the cut out mask areas, exposing the glass.

Because the wine glass has a curved surface, you will want to create “walls” around the design to keep the crème from spreading onto other surface areas. Use the edge of the etchmask to form the walls. Lift the edge of the mask up about 1”. Fold about ½” over, adhesive surfaces together leaving the edge free. Replace and adhere edge to surface, creating the wall. Repeat with all the edges until walls enclose design.

Following the etchall crème directions, etch the design on the vase. In general, you will spread the etchall crème over the design and leave on for 15 minutes. When ready, you will remove the crème with the squeegee and return to the bottle. etchall crème is reusable. You will then rinse the etched surface with water to remove any remaining etch crème. Wipe glass dry.

Repeat process until your wine glass is etched with your desired design. Position the stems and leaves and etch onto wine glass.
