Decorative Painting with etchall

etchall® produces an evenly etched finish that has texture or “tooth” that holds paint. Your tole painting is no longer limited to paper, wood, or tin. You can now take tole painting to exciting new levels. Recycle old glass bottle and jars to create lovely treasures and gifts.

To tole paint on an etched surface, simply follow these easy directions:

  1. Choose an object to etch…glass plate, bottle, ceramic lamp, china ornament or mirror.
  2. Etch the object according to the directions on the bottle. Think of etchall® as a primer for glass. etchall® is to glass, is what sandpaper is to wood.
  3. After etching, transfer the patterns onto the glass just as you would onto a wooden surface. Use acrylic, oil paints, or permanent inks to paint your masterpiece on the etched surface.
  4. Watch as your beautiful design unfolds on this “canvas of glass”. With etchall®, you now have many more surfaces on which to display your artistry. Remember, because the etched surface is opaque, each side displays its own unique pattern and does not compete with designs on other portions of the glass.

etchall® sets you free to explore tole painting new ways. You are limited only by your imagination.

Stamping & Embossing etched Surfaces

Thanks to etchall®, your rubber stamps can now grace the etched surfaces of glass, mirror, ceramics or porcelain. You are no longer limited to stamping on paper or fabric.

etchall® etching crème and etchall® dip ‘n etch give etched surfaces texture or “tooth” that permanent ink stamping or embossing will adhere to. Because the etched surface is opaque, each side displays its own unique pattern and does not compete with designs on other portions of the glass.

To use rubber stamps on etched surfaces, simply follow these easy instructions.

  1. Etch your object with etchall® etching crème or etchall® dip ‘n etch. Etching prepares the surface to receive your stamp work. Think of it as a primer for glass.
  2. Stamp or emboss your design onto the etched surface.
  3. Add color to your stamped design with permanents inks, acrylics, or oils. You can even create reverse or negative images, where the entire object is etched except for your stamped design. Your embossed image acts as a resist or stencil to prevent that section of glass from being etched.
  • To rubber stamp on a rounded surface, such as a jar, ink the stamp and lay it flat on the table, ink-side up. Then roll your jar on top of the stamp to create an evenly stamped image.

To create a negative etched image with embossing powders, follow these easy to use instructions.

  1. Emboss your design on a glass surface before etching.
  2. Etch the item using etchall® etching crème or etchall® dip ‘n etch.
  3. Wash the item thoroughly, rubbing off the embossing powders.
  4. The area that was covered by your embossed design will be transparent, but the etched surface will have a smooth, white opaque finish.

Etching Vertical Surfaces with etchall®

For doors, windows, and other large vertical surfaces

Application and Etching Instructions

Follow these easy steps for a PROFESSIONAL QUALITY ETCH

1. Clean surface to be etched with any type of window cleaner. Dry with a lint free cloth or paper towel.

2. Measure and mark where the stencil is to be placed.

3. Remove the release or backing paper from the back of the stencil. If using a large pattern, just remove top edge, place on marks and rub pattern down with etchall squeegee. Remove the rest of the paper slowly.

4. Once stencil application is complete, carefully remove the top edge of the transfer sheet from the front of the stencil. If any glass or mirror is exposed, COVER with etchall etchmask or self-adhesive paper.

5. Take the shiny release paper that you took off the back and place it over the stencil and rub down with etchall squeegee. This will make sure all pieces have adhered to surface.

6. Using the etchall cut/pick knife, lift each section of pattern to be etched. Place tip of knife inside outline and lift out. Peel off slowly in case a small edge has not been cut thoroughly. If this is the case, stop and cut with knife. This may occur on tiny or very detailed areas. After all is picked, once again place the piece of release paper on top of the stencil design and rub firmly with etchall squeegee.

7. You are now ready to apply etchall etching crème. Dip dense sponge into etchall crème and quickly float over entire pattern. To get a sharp even etch make sure pattern is generously covered and that the etching crème goes beyond the cut lines. Let it stand 15 minutes. Never apply etchall etching crème with a bristle brush.

8. Using your etchall squeegee, scrape the etchall etching crème back into the bucket.

9. At this point, DO NOT take off the stencil pattern. Using a water dampened sponge, wipe off all etchall etching crème making sure the glass is clear and clean. Using a spray bottle of water, rinse glass as you peel off stencil. Dispose of stencil. Dry glass. You now have a lovely permanently etched window, side light or shower door.
