Instructions for Using
Etchall Resist Gel to Etch Glass

Etchall Resist Gel is a water-based gel that enables you to create your own unique designs without using a stencil. Etchall Resist Gel forms a protective barrier against Etching Cream or Etchall Dip 'N Etch. This barrier acts as a resist preventing the surface from being etched.

Etchall Resist Gel can be either squeezed directly from the bottle or brushed evenly onto glass. It appears green and opaque when wet, but dries clear. Drying time depends on thickness of application.

Apply Etchall Resist Gel to a clean glass surface using the gel to draw a design. This design will be the un-etched portion of the glass. Use the resist gel to build a barrier around the perimeter of the area to be etched in order to protect the rest of the glass. Let the Etchall Resist Gel dry completely, and apply Etching Cream as directed. Remove the etching cream according to the directions on the bottle, and peel the dry resist gel from the surface while holding the object under running water. Discard the used Etchall Resist Gel and rinse the object again. Your design is ready!

1. Apply resist gel directly out of the bottle onto a clean surface, using the gel to draw a design. This design will be the un-etched portion of the glass.
2. Continue using the Etchall Resist Gel to fill in all areas of the surface you do not want etched.
3. Let the resist gel dry completely. The appearance of the gel will change from an opaque green color to clear. Drying time will depend upon thickness of application.
4. Apply Etching Cream or dip object in Etchall Dip 'N Etch according to the product instructions. Leave cream on for 15 minutes, or let object sit in dip 'n etch for 15 minutes.
5. After time has elapsed, return Etching Cream or Etchall Dip 'N Etch to its original container. Do not allow any etching cream to touch glass you do not want etched, because cream will instantly etch surface.
6. Quickly remove any remaining  or Etchall Dip 'N Etch by rinsing the object under running water.
7. Quickly and carefully, peel resist gel from the surface while holding the object under running water. Discard used resist gel, and rinse the object again. Admire your finished product!
