Wow, I think I know why we haven't seen a bunch of other etched glass pictures. Only do this if you want a DIY and not to save money. Your product won't be quite as good as you can buy at a bargain glassware site, and it will be very close to the same price. After reading about the issues with making the stencil, I bought a 4" X 5" one for $20. Then I bought the kit for $20 and it included the 30 second etching cream and the adhesive as well as some silver paint to highlight the etched glass. I ruined about 6-7 glasses getting the technique down and eventually ended up with glasses like this. My advice is to avoid thin lines, they blur and skip. Use the adhesive, it let's you know when the stencil has a slight bubble and keeps the stencil tight to the glass. Don't use the paint, it looks weird and doesn't apply evenly.

Thanks for the write up! I used the silver rub n buff. It really makes it pop.

I did these growlers as a wedding gift for a friend. Posted this photo just to show how it looks on straight amber glass compared to the rub n buff.

I foresee more glass etching in my future.
