I stenciled two wine glasses for my mom last night using Armor Etch. It came out pretty good for a first attempt Smiley I also bought some silver Rub n Buff to try to bring out the etching a little bit more. For some reason when I went to wash it off, all of it came off, even the part on the etching. I'm thinking it could have been two things: A - I didn't let it dry long enough or B - I washed it off instead of rubbed it off. I'm going to try it again tonight with a less silver (so I dont wind up having to wash the entire glass again) then just rubbing off the excess. Any advice would be really appreciated.


It's not a real sport unless you can die from massive internal injuries.

Sorry, hun. The Rub n Buff stuff is not water safe. It will wash off every time. Unfortunately I have yet to find coloring to enhance the Armor Etch finish. Sad If I find something relatively soon,  I will definately share it with you!

Does anybody out there have a product that they use to help enhance the Armor Etch look?
