Armour Etch–Is it really that easy? YES!

Armour Etch-04

Armour Etch looks too good to be true, but it’s not!  It takes only 60 seconds to apply and washes clean with only water!  The etching results are permanent.  Amazing!

I hadn’t tried Armour Etch before, but I’ve seen it all over crafting blogs and Pintrest and I had to try it for myself!

I bought the smallest size of Armour Etch they sold at Michael’s.  It’s a little expensive, but I used a 40% off coupon.

The paste was thinner than I expected, but it was very easy to spread.  I was amazed that it only needed to be on the glass for 60 seconds!  Wow!

My Experiment

Armour Etch 2-03

I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on this experiment, so I just used what I already had at home.  I used two spaghetti sauce jars and made mine own stencil using leftover contact paper.  I printed out an “S” from word and cut it out by hand using a craft knife.

I followed the directions on the bottle and spread on a thick amount of paste using a craft stick.

I rinsed off the Armour Etch after only 60 seconds.  Instant gratification!

I was also surprised at how smooth the glass surface was.  I was expecting the etched area to feel rough!

I would definitely recommend this product, it works great!  The most important thing is that you have a good stencil.  Contact paper wasn’t sticky enough and paste seeped under it.  Other craft bloggers have use vinyl and a cricket machine with amazing results!  Armour etch also sells stencils although I didn’t like the look of any of them.

PS.  I did not get paid for this review. If somebody out there wants to pay me, I’ll take it! 🙂
