I followed Kairle's Happy Valley Quilter tutorial here and made two etched Pyrex dishes.
I let the etching solution sit on the dishes for a long time. One was 30 minutes and the other 50 minutes but you really can't tell the difference. I wish that I would have pressed the contact paper template firmer onto the glass because I had some etch solution seep through to the glass. Notice that the 'I', 'V' and 'E' have a little wonky wave going on around the letters. I did address a few Holiday cards while I let the etching solution do 'it's magic'. I brought another set of Pyrex dishes and want to etch one as a gift for DS's 'on again' girlfriend. I thought I would use her first name then that way she will be able to use the dish forever! :)
One is a Bridal Shower gift that I will be attending on December 28th and the other is a Christmas gift. I included 4 hot pads in each and a cookbook.
