DIY Etch A Pint Glass With A Police Box eg TARDIS

"Transform a plain pint glass by etching a police box, similar to the TARDIS from the BBC show Doctor Who, on to the surface using etchall® etching crème. Use your electronic cutting machine to create a vinyl stencil or cut one by hand. Apply the stencil, then the etching crème. Wait 15 minutes, remove the crème (which can be re-used over and over again) and you're done! This method of glass etching permanently changes the surface of the glass. Finished pieces are dishwasher safe. The process is safe, has little or no fumes and is fast and easy! It's easy to make unique pieces that make great gifts with etchall - the re-usable crème that produces a white opaque, permanent etched finish on glass, mirror, ceramic, porcelain, marble and slate."
