Using Your Cricut to Etch on Glass Bakeware!

I got this idea to etch my name onto a brownie sized pan so that when I took brownies to a potluck, I would be able to find my pan easily. Then, I got the idea that these 8x8 glass pans would make great teacher gifts for Christmas!! I have almost 10 teachers to get gifts for and this is actually a practical, yet personalized, gift.

To see how to etch onto glass bakeware, check out my video below!



HERE'S SOME MORE INFO:

Q: Will Armour Etch or Etch Bath work on my Pyrex, ovenware glass or hurricane glass?
A: Armour Etch and Etch Bath will not work on SOME Pyrex items. Some Pyrex (ovenware) is manufactured by a heat process that fortifies the glass for use in your oven. This process can be decorated with etchants. Another process to create ovenware is to bond a plastic coating to the outside of the glass object to also fortify the glass item. This process will NOT allow the etchants to work as the etchants are not strong enough to break through the plastic coating. The only way to tell the difference between the two manufacturing process is to place a tiny dot of the etchant in a place on your overware where the dot, if it should etch, will not be an issue for you. Let the dot stay on for one minute, wash it off and dry the area completely before you determine whether or not you have a success.

Also, I consulted a Materials Science Engineer about whether the etching would cause the pan to crack after repeated baking episodes and she stated that the cooking temperatures are not high enough to cause any problems.

  13. Joy, thanks for the video. I tried etching one of my pyrex dishes and it didn't work. I did it on the bottom, so maybe it will work on the side. I'll let you know tomorrow!

  24. My sister and I have tried this and we went to yard sails and picked up all kinds of glassware for pennies. This was great, so if you messed up you just picked another piece of glass. We have already started pieces for X-mas.
