"Hi,  I didn't read through the 9 pages, but I didn;t see photos of Colored Etching cream.  can you add food coloring or something, and if this has already been addressed, ignore this and Make me read through the pages to find it, I deserve it. "

---Well, you can use colored glass to start with.  The etching cream is a caustic substance that permanently eats away the surface of the glass, "etching" it chemically.  It's the equivalent of chemical sandpaper.  So no, adding food coloring to the etching cream wouldn't change the color of the glass.  The only thing that would give you "colored glass results" would be to start with colored glass in the first place.  My friend and I did some blue glass recently and it turned out beautifully.

you can use window/glass paint on the etched parts after the etching has dried

I'm not sure that window / glass paint is dishwasher safe?  But if you find a brand that is, post the name of it here.  I've not found one that's dishwasher safe...

Yesterday was my friend's 21st birthday, so my friend and I went to Party Source (basically a giant booze store) and bought 6 shot glasses for 99 cents each.

Then we cut out shapes from contact paper (clouds, hearts, stars, squares, polka dots, and lightning bolts) and etched around them.

They turned out fabulous and she loved them.

Just an idea for a cute gift.


Also, a little tip, make sure the coat is VERY even. And the bottle of Armor Etch says to leave it on for 5 minutes, but I would leave it on for 10-15 just to be safe.

Hello all,

I am going to try my hand at frosting some drinking glasses as a party favor/gift for my friend's upcoming baby shower.  I have to frost a total of 24 glasses in all Shocked I went to Michael's and purchased the etching cream and tons of the alphabet stickers.

Before I start I have a few questions....

1.) Is it okay to use any type of stickers??? The stickers I purchased are acid & lignin free (what-ever that means) and they were in the scrapbooking supply section. They are your basic block style alphabet stickers.

2.) Is there a certain brand of masking tape that you recommend to use for boarder because I know that some types of masking tape leave a sticky residue when you peel it off?
