Here is a glass christmas ornament that I etched, using the Silverbells stencil. Sorry about the photograph - I tried several times to get a good photo.
While I had the etching cream out, I put my name on a glass baking pan. I am thinking this is pan will be good for those potluck dinners - that way I can get my pan back!!
If you are thinking about etching you own baking pan, make sure that you etch the back side of the dish away from the food. Remember that you will also have to 'mirror image' the words if you put the words on the back of the glass baking pan. The baking pan will be dishwasher safe and food safe.
For both of these projects I used cheap contact paper to make my stencils. I also found out that dry wall mesh tape is a really good substitute for transfer tape.
