It worked!

Ok, remember this post about labeling your glass serving dishes? Well.... I gave it a shot this weekend and it worked!

And it wasn't all that difficult either! I printed my name on a piece of Contact paper. Keep in mind, I had to print it as a "mirrored" image so that once it was transferred it read the right way. Then I used an Exacto knife to cut out the letter template. It was at this point that really wished I had one of those Silhouette Vinyl Cutter's because my Exacto-skills aren't all that great. But it only took a minute or two to cut out my name, so I should stop whining. Side note: if you are cutting out letters that have "islands", like my "e"s and "a"s, you should save them and apply them so your letters look normal, unless being abnormal doesn't bother you.   It's ok, I won't make fun of you.

Next I peeled off the backing of the contact paper and applied the adhesive template to the back of my baking dish. Bring on the etching cream!

I got mine at Michael's along with a small spongy paint brush.  The instructions are pretty straightforward.  I applied a thick layer to my template and let it set for about 5 minutes.

I rinsed off the etching cream, peeled off the template and voila! My name permanently etched in glass! I was so happy with the results, I did another smaller baking dish and two glass pie dishes.

Now my dishes will always make it back to me, yea!

    I think I am going to have to do this! I will cheat though and go to Green Tangerine and use their Cricut cutter thing!
