I am back with the result of the glass etch mugs!
I love how they turned out! If you missed my first glass etching post, you can find it here. They were at a local thrift store and I was so excited to find a whole set!
Here is the before picture, with price tags! They are nice, big mugs! The kind that are perfect for eating ice cream or cold cereal out of!
I washed the cups and then designed a cement tile like design in Silhouette Studio. Then I cut the design and weeded it so it can work like a stencil.
The picture above is the design where I used masking tape as transfer tape. I usually use transfer paper, but it is more expensive than masking tape and does the same job! It also can take longer to use transfer paper for this project because I would need to cut it into strips, but masking tape is already in perfect strips! So if I’m doing a project where I can use masking tape, I do!
After I applied the vinyl, I added masking tape to the top and bottom so that the etching cream wouldn’t accidentally get where I didn’t want it. Then once all the cups were ready, I painted on the etching cream with a paint brush.
After I applied the etching cream, I waited 15 minutes and washed it off! Here is the end product!
