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.
