How to Etch a Candy Dish

with etchall creme

Etch a colorful candy dish with etchall creme is quick and easy. No need for a cutting machine, just a paper punch in your desired shape. I am using a circle punch with vinyl scraps and finishing it off with buffing wax.

Before starting any etching project, you will want to clean the glass surface you will be etching. I am using 91% Isopropyl Alcohol.

This is a great project to use up your smaller pieces of vinyl. I used a paper punch to create the circle templates that I intend to etch onto the glass dish. Don’t forget to save those punched circles for another craft project!

Apply the vinyl to the glass dish just like you would a sticker, no transfer tape is needed. Fill in any gaps that might get etching creme on them with additional vinyl. Apply the etching creme to the circles and set a time for 15 minutes.

  • I like to set my timer for 7 minutes and then move the etching creme around to make sure all the surfaces are covered and then set the timer for an additional 7 minutes

To wrap up, remove the excess creme from your project and return it to the container. etchall etching creme is reusable.

Wash the glass in running water, and remove the vinyl.

• I use a baby wipe and then rubbing alcohol instead of running water.
