NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Clean the vase thoroughly with rubbing alcohol and paper towels. Let dry completely.
  2. Place the circle stencil from the Americana Reusable Stick-On Anchors Aweigh Stencil on the vase to mask off the border and then place the anchor shape in the circle. (This will create a mask so that the etching is done around the anchor.) Firmly press the stencils down to make sure there are no lifted edges or air bubbles.
  3. Optional: To protect the rest of the vase from drips, use painter's tape to make an extra border around the circle stencil mask.
  4. Wearing disposable gloves, use a palette knife to scoop out some Easy Etch Etching Cream and spread it over the stencil mask.
  5. Let the Easy Etch sit on the vase for 15 minutes.
  6. Still wearing gloves, scrape off any Easy Etch left from the vase and add back to the jar for re-use.
  7. Still wearing gloves, wash any remaining Easy Etch off the vase; rinse the stencil and vase completely.
