It works great and is very fast.
Barnzey
What I found worked perfect was to constantly keep pushing around the paste with the brush while waiting about 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

We bought about 200 glasses from thrift stores and yard sales to give out as wedding favors. We created a stencil and used this etching cream to etch them. It was super fast and simple to do. Brush on, leave for 5-10 minutes, wash off. We did find that a sponge style brush worked better to "dab" than a regular brush...the brushing motion sometimes got the cream under the stencil edges which made the etched lines not as crisp.

I have used Armour Etch Cream for about 5 years now. When I purchased my Cricut Expressions machine I saw a piece of etched glass on the side of the box. I started to research how to etch glass and Armour Etch was one of the first creams that I discovered. I read many reviews and this product is what I purchased.

The first time I used the cream it worked PERFECTLY! I brush it onto my stencil to create a thick layer (you don't want any streaks,) then let it sit for 5 minutes while watching it the entire time to be sure it does not drip. Then wash off the cream with plain water and you have a perfectly etched image.

My tips are to be sure you give your cream a good shake before using it. The chemicals need to be well combined to allow for an even etch. Also, you have to be careful not to get it get anywhere else on the glass other than your desired area because it etches almost instantly.

Overall this is a great product and I continue to buy it and use it often!

It did exactly what I wanted it to do. However, it didn't have instructions on the bottle. Just a TON of warnings. So I read some online blogs (and stayed at a Holiday Inn Express) and here's what I learned from both the blogs and my personal experiences: Wear gloves and wipe the glass down with rubbing alcohol beforehand to take off any reside from fingerprints or cleaner. Apply your stencil and carefully pour the armour etch onto the glass in small amounts. Use anything - I used a piece of cardboard - to spread the armour etch so it completely covers the area you want to etch. Let it sit 5 minutes and then use the cardboard to "stir" the paste around to ensure good coverage. Let sit 5 more minutes. Use the cardboard again and put the cream back into the bottle. Its reusable! Then (while still wearing gloves) rinse off the cream with water. I used my hand to help get it all off. Remove stencil and wahlah! etched glass. Good luck!

I wanted to make some neat glasses as a gift for a friend. I masked out a design, then applied the paste with a watercolor sized paintbrush. The etching did not seem consistent, although i left it on for the recommended time it was a little splotchy. What I found worked perfect was to constantly keep pushing around the paste with the brush while waiting about 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Swirl, swirl, swirl, count to 10, then start swirling again. Making little circles so that everything got stirred around rather than just letting it sit on top. When I did this the etching texture came out uniform and was very defined. I hope that tip helps some others. I have made over 15 glasses, its just so easy, and the kids like helping too.

Interesting review choices. It asks me how fun, durable, and educational this toy is. Huh? Glass etching acid is not a toy!
As for this product itself, it is an easy to use way to etch glass easily and effectively! I accidentally knocked out two window panes from an 1929 English Tudor window. These particular panes had an etched diamond shape on them. It was incredibly easy to apply the Armour Etching to the new window panes and restore the original look to the window. Once dried, the panes look identical to the originals located directly next to them!
I give this product 5 stars!

In high school I had taken a stain glass class and we learned how to use this product effectively. The directions on the product itself doesn't go into great detail and doesn't explain different ways on how to get the best results. Part of the procedures needed for great results is making sure that when you cut out the design on your contact paper, you want to make sure that you have nice clean crisp lines and that all of the edges to those lines are secured to the glass otherwise you may end up with a blotchy, unrecognizable design because the cream will get underneath those lines. As well, when you apply the product, making sure that you have applied an even, and thick layer of cream will help the results look nice causing the defined depth, desired. I have used this product many times since high school just for decorative fun and with more practice, the better the results become.

I had great luck with this product, made many etched glasses for the holidays and had quite a bit left over for other things. I used inexpensive contact paper for my designs, adhered it, then applied the etching cream per directions and I did leave it on about an hour due to making other things. Worked great and the results were wonderful.

Thank you.
