4:  The Finishing Touches

       The hard part is out of the way. Now, just a little clean-up, and you'll have a beautiful work of art!

Wash glass thoroughly to remove every trace of etching creme.

       After all the etching creme has been wiped away, thoroughly wash the glass with warm water and dish soap to remove any residue. You can take off the vinyl gloves now!

       Peel the stencil off the glass. It will come off in pieces, so be patient. You can use a utility knife to remove the small pieces. This can be a lengthy process, depending on the complexity of your design. The stencil is not reusable.

Remove the stencil.

Clean the glass.

       Wash the glass thoroughly with window cleaner and paper towels. Admire your beautiful work!

       That's all there is to etching glass the EgressEtch way. Now, you can start planning your next EgressEtch project!
