I’ve seen some really great etched glass projects on Pinterest like this and this, so I decided to try my hand at it too. But instead of etching a straight up logo, I wanted to reverse the process and give the entire glass a frosted look.
Today I’m going to show you how to stencil a football onto a pilsner glass using Martha Stewart Crafts® Frost Etching Effect.
Oh, and guys don’t let the name “Martha” name intimidate you … she actually helps makes this whole process a lot easier.
Here’s how you get started:
Step 1: Create a lip around the top of your glass with tape.
When working on drinkware, be sure to tape off a lip line approximately 2 cm from the top of the glass.
TIP: The tape may also help you to align the stencil on your glass.
Step 2: Apply your stencil to the glass.
Make sure there are no gaps or bubbles between your stencil and glass.
Step 3: Cover your glass with frost etching cream.
Dab on the cream with a sponge, and make sure to cover all of the exposed glass.
Step 4: Remove your stencil.
Once you have an even coat of etching cream on your glass, carefully pull off your stencil with a pin and let the glass dry for at least an hour.
Step 5: Bake in oven to set.
Securely place your glass in a cool oven, adjust to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes.
TIP: Be sure and let your glasses heat up gradually to avoid cracking.
Cheers! The perfect complement to your big game party.
