Glass etching without a stencil

This video shows my method for using armour etch without a stencil

  • Cover the area you are working with with a think coat of wax by rubbing it with a tea light.
  • Scrape away your design with a pencil
  • Cover with Armour Etch and wait 5 min.
  • Wash off the Armour Etch
  • Melt off the wax.

The intention if for this to resemble a hops cone used in making beer. I will fill this bottle with beer with the next batch.
