Transform glasses, a plate and a candlestick holder in to a fun serving set with etchall® etching creme and etchall® dip ‘n etch. Etchall creme is a a resuable etching crème. Dip ‘n etch is a re-usable etching liquid with the consistency of water. Each gives you a different effect and combined they give you a fantastic set!
I’ll be teaching this project as a class at Stampaway 2018 in Sharonville, Ohio on Wednesday, August 8. Stampaway is a four-day learning and shopping rubber stamping extravaganza featuring classes, a Friday preview party, fundraisers, an all-day Saturday rubber stamp convention, and more!

This project combines techniques used in two of my previous projects; DIY: Etch A Pint Glass With A Police Box (e.g. TARDIS) and Etch A Glass Candy Jar or Votive Holder. Check out those projects for detailed instructions with step-by-step photos and videos.
Here’s how to to create these glasses and serving plate:
- Cut out small hearts from the etchall® etchmask using the Brother ScanNCut or the etchall® Swivel Knife and apply them to the candlestick holder.
- Etch the candlestick holder with etchall® dip ‘n etch using the same technique that was used in the Etch A Glass Candy Jar or Votive Holder project.
- Cut out the quotes and hearts for the glasses and plate from etchall® etchmask using the Brother ScanNCut or the etchall® Swivel Knife and apply them to the pieces as shown in the photo.
- Etch the glasses and plate with etchall® etching crème using the same techniques that were used in the DIY: Etch A Pint Glass With A Police Box (e.g. TARDIS) project.
- Adhere the plate to the candlestick holder with E6000 adhesive.
Etching is a great way to turn plain pieces of glass in to something extraordinary! Enjoy!
