Etches glass, mirror, and glazed surfaces in just 15 minutes. Easy Etch™ safely delivers a frosted, white, matte finish that will not fade, chip or discolor. Unlike other brands, excess cream can be scraped back into the container, reducing the amount of waste.
Read precautions on container thoroughly before use. Clean surface to be etched with alcohol. Mask off areas that are not to be etched with patterning tape or adhesive-backed stencils. Apply a heavy coat of Easy Etch over surface area to be etched with a palette knife. Let sit for 15 minutes. Remove and return cream to the original container.
Immediately flush etched surface with water to remove remaining cream.
Only rinse in fiberglass or stainless steel sinks. After rinsing, be sure to flush sink with lots of water to ensure no residue is left behind to prevent discoloring of sink. DO NOT rinse Easy Etch cream in porcelain, ceramic, or natural stone sinks such as marble, granite, quartz, or Corian™.
Remove stencil or tape. Rinse again. Flush sink thoroughly after rinsing.
Will not work on plastic, some Pyrex™, high lead content glass, or color coated glass. To ensure etching will occur, test on an inconspicuous area with a drop of Easy Etch on the wooden tip of a paint brush.
Store in the original bottle in temperature conditions that fall between 65 and 85 degrees (F). Discoloration of cream will occur if temperature exceeds 85 degrees (F) but it will not affect performance. Storage temperatures that fall below 65 degrees (F) may cause cream to form crystals. To dissolve crystals, set closed Easy Etch container in warm water for several minutes and stir with disposable utensil until crystals are gone.
Before disposing of container, be sure to rinse the empty Easy Etch container with a combination of regular tap water and baking soda.
