Would glasses made with this be machine washable?

Yep!  Wink

I was hoping that someone would be able to help me?  I've been trying to do some glass etching using the armour etch cream, but the cream doesn't seam to be thick like I've seen on other peoples photos here.  It's very watery liquid, even when I shake and stir it a lot in the hope it would thicken up.  How do you get the cream to be thick like cream??

Thanks for any help! Smiley

Well, if you can stand the vapors: I've thickened mine up by simply leaving the lid off for a while...You have to monitor it fairly carefully, and stir it often to avoid chunks, but it will thicken up.  I also assume that this is why I always need to leave the stuff on for at least 20 minutes or longer; that what is evaporating is actually the acid...  Undecided

I absolutely love this idea that I decided to do glasses for some of my co-workers. The only problem is I my glasses have all come out really streaking in some areas and not an all over "frosted" look. I've tried a few different techniques from making in this to having a very thick layer.
Any ideas or suggestions?
Thanks Smiley

I was thinking of making a dry erase board out of glass, would the smooth side work after using this process? Thanks!
