I'm still learning to navigate around Pinterest and I must say I enjoy browsing through the categories looking at all the information available. The project below was one I pulled from the site under the DIY category, its super easy and the process can be used for lots of projects. Found through Pinterest
I found 4 quart Pyrex baking dishes to use for this project. I did have to go to a couple of stores before I could find the Pyrex baking dishes without the logo molded into the bottom of the dish. I knew I wanted to put the name in the bottom of the dish just to make the project easier. If you want to use the side of the dish as is show in the attached website this won't be a problem. These were Christmas gifts for some friends this year, I hope they enjoy them.
The supplies are pretty basic and not costly. You can pick up etching cream at most any hobby store. I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby. I used a small foam brush to dab the etching cream on the stencil, nice thing about these are they are inexpensive and you can just toss them after the project is finished. The flat paddle in this picture was used to help lift the stencil to reposition it as I worked across the name.
I started by cutting out the name on my Cricut. If you don't have a cutting machine of some type you can do could print the name on a computer and then cut the stencil by hand into the vinyl. I used contact paper rather than the more expensive paper sold by Cricut and it worked great. After the letters were cut out I used the negative to adhere to the bottom of the dish. I put another piece of vinyl over the top and burnished the lettering to make sure that everything was adhered well so the etching cream wouldn't bleed under it and ruin the project.
The etching cream was dabbed on heavily, I've learned that brushing it on as indicated on the bottle doesn't give good enough coverage to the project.
After allowing the etching cream to set the required time indicated on the bottle you wash it off with warm water, remove the stencil and this is what you'll have, the name of the owner of the dish permanently etched into the glass.
I'm going to use this process for my own glass baking dishes, I'll never loose another one at a covered dish dinner again.
