Step 1: I removed my glass from the frame and applied contact paper over the top. I left a small boarder around the outside. Step 2: I lined my scrapbook paper up with the corner and started cutting away the negative space in the pattern with my exato knife. I traced the design with the knife and then peeled it away. The scrapbook paper was about 1/4 of the size of the glass pane. I had to move it around to finish the pattern.
Step 3: Once the pattern was cut from the entire pane, I applied the etching cream. I followed the directions on the bottle, but added 5 extra minutes to the wait time. Make sure you use gloves and don’t rinse your etched glass in a ceramic sink, it will dull the finish.
