What you'll need
Plain glass jar, cup or plate
1 Wash and dry your glass jars.
2 Using craft punches, punch your design onto a piece of contact paper. Anything not covered by the contact paper will be etched onto the glass, which will end up cloudy.
3 Peel the backing off the contact paper and tape it onto the glass.
4 Smooth out any air bubbles with your fingers.
5 Put on disposable gloves.
6 Brush a thick coat of etching cream onto the exposed surface.
7 Set aside for 15 minutes.
8 Using a sponge, carefully wipe off the cream under running water.
9 Repeat steps 6 to 8 until you get a perfectly etched pattern.
10 Peel off the contact paper and let dry.
Etched glass should be only hand-washed.
