    I bought a casserole dish with no writing on the bottom before I saw this video and used it. It was made by Glad, it did not take the etching very well. if you move the dish just right you can see the writing, but only the outline. 🙁

      We just used Armour Etch cream to etch the design! There is nothing white added, that’s just how it looks! Isn’t that great!!

    Just did my first etch…on a Dollar Tree glass plate. Your directions were PERFECT and the results were awesome. Thank you for being such a great “instructor”!!!

    So when I wash after adding glads etch my design is disappearing. – do I need to cure or bake it in?

    • Lynn Chebanyuk says

      The problem you may be having, Danielle, is your glassware. You do NOT need to cure or bake the Armour Etch. Some glassware, however, cannot be etched properly. What you need to look for is the amount of borosilicate in your glass! Older Pyrex (made before 1998) and dishes from IKEA and some other places seem to have a large amount of borosilicate in them. They will not etch at all, or won’t etch as well, like other glass. This is because borosilicate is a harder type of glass. If you see a note that your dish is very scratch and impact-resistant, or is made to withstand rapid temperature changes, it’s possible that it may not be able to etch correctly. Please check your etching cream manufacturer’s website for information. If in doubt, take a toothpick and put a dot of etching cream on the dish to test it out to see if it will etch or not! 😍
