Pyrex, Great Gift Idea ~ People love things with their names on it
I know these are very popular and you can see a lot of different ways of doing this. I do the etching on the outside of the dish. Some people do it on the inside and I don't care for that way for a couple of reasons. Your free to choose what you like best, this is just my preference.
I print the name I want on my computer in a font that I like. Place the paper name on the inside of the dish and tape it in place.
placement is critical!
Then using an Exact~O knife I cut out the name. Pay attention to letters like a and e that will have a little piece that MUST stay behind when you peel away the letters. Peel away everywhere you want the etching to be.
I use Armor Etch, which you can buy at major craft stores like Micheal's and Hobby Lobby. I apply it with a very small 1/4" paint brush which I use over and over, just make sure you clean it well. Apply the etching to the surface and wait 5 ~ 7 minutes for the magic to work. I then go to the sink and wash off the etching and pick off the remaining contact and wash then wash it again to make sure all the etching is off. I have the water running on it the whole time, it doesn't take long at all.
We hope you enjoyed this post and it inspires you.
