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!
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! 🙂
