Hi, we're etching glass today, for some fantastic personalized gifts, and we're going to be working on this votive holder. Some of the things you're going to need to do a custom etching on glass, is your pattern. We're choosing to do skull and crossbones, because the person I'm giving this to, is into the skull and crossbones thing,and I've just ran this off from my computer. This is transparent vinyl, from contact paper. It comes in a roll like this, and this is what we're going to use for our stencil. You're also going to need the scissors, to cut it out. You're going to need a knife. This is the Exacto Knife, which is what I like to use, and this we use to cut out the stencil, and also, you're going to need your etching cream, of course, the water and the paper towels, to wipe it off.
