There werent any directions on the bottle at all? Did it perhaps come with a paper? Or a peel-off label?

5 bucks? what does the label say? becuase i bet it's not etching cream at all. it's more likely a base htat you have to add something else to...

What is the name of the product you bought?  Maybe it's one of those paints that leave a frosted look on glass, and rinsing it off rinsed the coat of paint off.

Here is my effort. Started with a mini blue vase (came with a 1-800-Flowers bouquet from my bday). Used a paw print punch on painter's tape to create pattern. Etched in the paw prints. Topped it off with a $3 dog collar from Target. Am currently using it with a candle, to highlight the etched parts, but may change it to holding a bouquet of doggie pictures. This is a Xmas gift for my dog loving sister.

i am definitely trying this. im pretty sure everyone in my household will end up with some type of etched whatsit. how much does a bottle of the etching cream run? Huh (im sorry if this was mentioned, 46 pages is ALOT to go through..)

i took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. i am. i am. i am.

i do personal swaps!

Thanks so much for the tutorial and ideas, they have all helped so much!
2 of my friends and I got together a couple of weeks ago for an etching "party" of sorts. It was very fun, and we all came away with cool looking glassware. Here is a picture of the bottom of a glass container I etched:

I made the container (it was one of those glass cylinders that often hold things like candy) into a bank for my brother. Since he likes swords, I etched the words "Sword Savings" on the body of the container and put dollar signs on the bottom.

This is such a great idea! I went to IKEA and bought some tumblers, wine, and martini glasses and got to work!  By the way, if you have an IKEA in the area, I'd recommend it for cheap glassware. Most sets of 6 were about $5.

I had to drive around a bit to find the Armor Etch.  Michaels didn't have anything worthwhile, so I finally found it at a place called Kit Crafts in Studio City, CA.

So, I finished one set of wine glasses and one set of martini glasses.  The martini glasses have different alcohols printed on the front:

The wine glasses have the names of everyone in my family, and then the 6th one has all our last names printed on them:

The pictures aren't perfect, but the glasses turned out great!  Thanks for the wonderful tutorial!
