I finally tried my hand at the Emboss Resist Etching which was featured in a previous Splitcoast Stampers Weekly Inking. It's a wonderful technique to create one of a kind glassware items including plates, bowls, jars, etc.
The first step is to emboss your image on to the glass. To do this, clean the glass thoroughly and then rub your embossing buddy all over. Stamp your image with Versamark and cover with clear embossing powder. Tap off the excess powder, and use a small brush to remove any stray bits of powder before heating. When heating the glass, be sure to have it on a heat-resistant surface as it may get warm! Also, be careful not to overheat your glass as well.
After embossing, make a mask for your item so that you only etch the parts you want. Contact paper works great for these masks, and you can use your Coluzzle to cut a circle or oval from the center for the etched portion.
Place your mask on your plate or other glass item, and then apply a generous amount of etching cream. I used Armour Etch Cream™ which I got at Michael's. Leave the cream on for 5-10 minutes per the instructions, then rinse. Be careful not to get any cream on your hands as it may burn. Gloves are strongly recommended for this project! After thoroughly cleaning your plate again, gently scrape off the embossed part using your fingernail, or a wooden spoon.
Good luck, and I'd love to see whatever designs you come up with using this great technique!
