You buy the etching cream, which is expensive from your craft store (joanne's doesn't carry it, i find it at michaels). It costs $34.00 for a big bottle or $15.00 for a little bottle. Each bottle can do ALOT!!! Oh and to save you time and money. DO NOT BUY THE GENERIC. It costs like $5.00. It doesn't work, I tried it. And don't buy the sand etch sand blaster. It doesn't work either.
Now for the Instructions:
Step One. Get your vinyl piece. Yes it looks like this:
Step Two: Clean your pan with glas cleaner. Put it on the back, not the inside, the back of your pan like this:
Step Three: Get the really expensive stuff and using a crappy paint brush place a nice coat, not to thin but don't waste the stuff, it costs alot remember. Leave that stuff on for 30 minutes. No less, It's okay if it's more. It puffs up. Kind of like hydrogen peroxide on a cut. Put it on just like this:
Step Five: Wash that stuff off and peel off the vinyl, make sure to get the insides of your letters. It doesn't look like it's done, but trust me it is.
These make great Enrichment Night Projects, Super Saturday Projects, Christmas and Wedding gifts, and are great for teachers...fill it with a cake mix and frosting and tie a bow around it.
