- and you choice of project you want to etch on! In this case I'm etching Glass Mugs!!!
Step 2: When etching with a font and wanting to make sure that you have a well placed design, you will need to do a few extra steps in helping you make sure your have a great placement!!! I had my husband help with this process so that I could get photos of these steps for you!!! As you see below in the two photos, we have used masking tape that is 1 1/2 inches wide. We placed a piece of this tape at the top and bottom of the mug!!!
Now that we have out placement set, (and we did these very same steps on each mug) we were ready to transfer out design!!!
I cut my design from my electronic cutting machine. I then (BEFORE) i removed it from my mat, I placed a piece of Etchall Etching Transfer Sheet over the top of the design and used my Squeegee tool to burnish and make sure I had good contact for the transfer.

Etchall Etching Cream as you see below, use the Squeegee tool and apply a very thick layer. You want a thick coating of the cream so that you can have the perfect etch. To ensure this, I make sure I apply enough so that my design cannot be seen as you see in the pic below!!!
NOTE: Dont worry about using extra cream because all ETCHALL Etching Cream and the Etchall Dip N etch is REUSABLE!! So you can make 100's of project using the cream over and over again!!!
Now you are going to let this cream stand for 15 mins by following all the instructions on the bottle!!
