I have wanted to personalize my glass dish for a long time. I asked my friend Teri who does small vinyl if she could help me out with a design and she hooked me up.

What you’ll need:
Vinyl that will stick or letters taped down (vinyl works better so no seeping to distort the image.)
Etching compound (I used Martha Stewarts, found at Michael’s)
Take your vinyl (or letters) and place them on the glass dish (I put them on the outside).
Smooth out any bubbles.
Use the brush that comes with the etching material and spread evenly and thick over the vinyl, making sure to keep it contained where you want it or it will etch more than you want.
Do NOT get this on your skin (wear gloves!) or breath in the fumes.
Allow the cream to sit for at least 15 minutes.
Wash off and remove the vinyl.
I think this is a great wedding gift you could give to a new couple with their name on it, you can definitely take an older dish (like me) and personalize it. It will keep people from taking your dish (hopefully), unless they are family and have the same name.
