I am trying to etch names onto glasses for christmas presents too. Problem is I am making them tomorrow night to give out Friday AND I can't find good lettering stencils so I wanted to do my own. Your technique seems SO easy. Does the fabric paint wash off? I am a little confused. Also, what products did you use? Can you explain it to me? Thanks!!!!!!!

Here is the link to my blog - I think I outlined it in my post about the canisters:
http://onyxnox.blogspot.com/2007/11/come-and-see-my-etchings.html

The only thing I would like to add is that when the compound is rinsed off, even for those brief seconds it touches clean glass, even diluted, it can leave a slightly etched bloom.  If you want your glass to stay perfectly clear where the image is not going to be etched, cover it with more paint, or tape it up.

I used Armour Etch which I have bought at Michaels, as the chemical etching medium, and dimensional fabric paint, which you can buy in the craft department at Walmart, and perhaps some dollar stores.  The brand I had on hand was Tulip.

I did my first etching project last week, and spent a long time carving intricate snowflakes from the blank stencil stuff, and I'm making some more glasses this week for a friends mother...

I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for doing it with fabric paint and posting it!  This will save me SO much time tonight and I always have fabric paint with me!  Excellent job, too.

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

I loved unicorns when I was a little girl!  This is a great idea!

Very nice. I've tried some glass etching, but it never looked that good.

Oooh.  I want to make a set of glasses like that now. Smiley I'm sure she'll love them!
Also, you might like to know that the Armour Etch stuff can actually be reused. just scrape the excess back into the jar, and wash away the rest. Smiley (I found this info on The Anticraft, but haven't actually done it yet.)

I love them!
I would love to make something like that, but I don't think we have something like the etching paste you used.
