with etchall creme
This cute little jar makes for a great treat gift. What a fun way to say thanks with a little jar filled with a special treat. I etched a design around the jar using etchall creme and to make it more special I colored it with silver rub-on wax to match the hardware.

To etch the jar I used etchall etching creme and a stick-on stencil from the Dollar Tree. The stencil wrapped perfectly around the width of the glass jar.
To prepare the glass surface for etching, I always clean it first with alcohol. This removes dirt and sticker residue.
I applied the stencil around the glass jar and then covered it above and below the stencil with plastic washi tape as an extra precaution against any etching creme going beyond the stencil.
etchall etching creme takes 15 minutes to work its magic. I set a timer for 7 minutes, and then move the creme around in case I missed any spots. For this project, I turned the jar upside down at this point and then set the timer for an additional 7 minutes.
Once the time has passed, I removed the creme and put it back into the jar. etchall etching creme is reusable. Then I “washed” the etching with a baby wipe, peeled off the stencil and tape, cleaned the glass again with alcohol, and finally buff the etching with a cloth.
Here is the jar with the etching and it could be finished at this point.
I chose to enhance the design with a rub on metallic wax in silver. Using a cotton swab to apply the creme and then I buffed the excess off with a cloth.
Here is a perfect little single serving treat in a specially etch jar ready for gifting.
