I made this 3×5 ft flag display from Cherry for a good friend. It took my time on this one and I am really happy with the final product. As a kicker I etched his initials on the glass using etching cream.

Nice job, I used to do that stuff. What etching creme did you use Etchall?
There’s also a paste type paint called rub n buff I used on a etching worked pretty well

Nice Work. Are those bought stencils or did you cut them yourself

Thank you all for you positive comments and questions, much appreciated! I used armour etch for the cream. I did not cut the stencils, they are Rub N Etch brand stencils that I purchased from Michael’s. I DO NOT recommend these…..the stencils are way too fragile. Spend the extra money for the re-usable stencils!

Have your say...
