DIY: Etched Beer Glasses

Beer glasses etched using StencilPro silk screen stencil and Armour Etch

These would make a great gift for 'him' for a Valentine's day, a Father's day gift, or a birthday present.
Think personalized wedding bride and groom toasting glasses or a timeless wedding keepsake. This simple and cheap method of glass etching produces great results.

Beer glasses with StencilPro stencils attached ready for etching
I have decided to use beer quotes by famous people; which I printed on transparency (in black and white), then turned into silk screen stencils using product, called StencilPro. Download artwork I used in this project for free from StencilItPretty Freebies page.

Supplies:
•  StencilPro film or StencilPro Starter Kit: Basic or Complete
•  Transparency sheet (comes with StencilPro Starter Kit)
•  Eco Exposure light (to develop or expose your stencils)
•  Armour Etch cream
•  Masking tape
•  Small paintbrush
•  Beer glasses

Here is the video of the complete step by step glass etching project. Enjoy!

Thanks for watching!

    1. Hi,
      Thanks for asking! I am using StencilPro Standard. If you look at my original artwork: here or at the stencils in the picture above (attached to glasses), the letters are pretty bold; therefore, no need to use StencilPro HiRes (high resolution).

    1. I am using 3M Spray Mount Artist’s Adhesive - it is repositionable and works great on glass, fabric and other surfaces.

    1. With proper cleaning, the StencilPro stencil can be used literally hundreds of times. Just make sure not to let the etching cream to dry; promptly soak your stencil in warm tap water, wash and air dry.
