Glass etching

Supplies needed: Clear Contact paper
Cricut machine or die cut machine
Glass item- pan, vase, bowl, etc.
Glass etching medium
Foam brush
Rubber gloves

Clean your glass item with glass cleaner.Cut out your word(s) or design. If you're doing it on the bottom of a pan cut the words out backwards (by placing your contact paper opposite when you cut it).
Place contact paper on your glass item. Make sure you rub out all the bubbles and get all the edges placed securely down.
Place your glass etching medium on the glass using the foam brush. Follow package directions for time. (You can sometimes scrape off the extra cream back into the bottle.)
Remove the cream thoroughly with water before you remove the contact paper.
