Glass Etching : Glass Etching: Printing Stencil Designs Onto Vinyl


Hi, I’m Robin, and we’re making a skull and
cross bones candle holder with etched glass. This way to put your stencil on the vinyl,
is to just cut out a piece of the vinyl, and run it through your printer. And it’s going
to depend on the type of printer that you have. Mine took a couple of times to do it.
It might get clogged up in there, it just depends on the printer that you have. But
what I did was, I ran this little piece through the printer. And the ink doesn’t dry very
well, so I immediately put a bigger piece over the top of it, so that the ink wouldn’t
smear. And then you take off the back of both pieces, this is what it looks like, and you’re
just going to put it on your candle holder, or whatever glass object that you’re going
to use. Make sure that there’s no bubbles, and that it is flat and even. And this is
kind of curved so it’s going to make it a little bit difficult. If it has curves like
this, bubbles, just work them out with your fingernail, or with the popsicle stick that
we used earlier, and just work with it until it’s on smoothly. If you have to lift it up
and work with it some more, that works out good. And we’re just working that on.
