Mark’s Finest Papers

When I saw this set I decided it would make a nice decorated cookie plate, so I used some etching cream and found an inexpensive clear glass plate at KMart. When you try this technique make sure the plate or glass is very clean and free from fingerprints. You might have to stamp your image more than once, the glass is slippery and it can take a few tries.

Stamp your image in versamark and emboss with clear powder. Using a mask cut out of contact paper, apply it to the glass and spread on the etching cream. Let it sit for a good twenty minutes at least, then wipe it off and rinse off your plate or glass in the laundry tub, if you have one. I really like the effect it produces, it is just difficult to get a good photo. Thanks for looking and best of luck on the hop.

That is super cute, Peggysue!! I have never tried glass etching, but really like the sparkle of glass around Christmas and what a nice gift presentation this would be, too!
