You will also need a glass pitcher or another glass surface your father would prefer using.

How to Etch Glass for Your Father’s Day Gift

  1. Take your stencil off of its backing.
  2. Lay the stencil on your glass where you want it, making sure to press all the bubbles and wrinkles out.
  3. Take your artist brush and cut the bristles so that they are flat.
  4. Dip your brush in the Etching Cream and apply it to the stencil. Continue to apply a thick coat, moving your brush sideways and up and down. This will work the etching cream into the glass.
  5. Remove the stencil and wash off the glass. Your new stag pitcher (or whatever glass surface you created) is now ready to use!
