Default Glass etching question

I tried this today and the frost part is sort of smeary. Did I not put on enough of the cream. I did clean with window cleaner before using the cream. Just wondered if anyone has had this happen. Thanks!

Yes, your suspicions are correct, not enough cream.
My tips are:
-make sure the residue of the windex is off the glass (a rinse in clear water and use a good paper towel to dry/buff)

-limit the size your are etching, smaller is better. I use electrical taper to create a border or my coluzzle on contact paper to create a circle or oval space to etch in.

-goop on the cream really thickly in one direction and let it sit for the full amount of time.

It's so fun to have an etched finished product!

If you have a spotty look, then not enough cream.
If your edges are blurred, then the stencil wasnt flat enough against your product and the cream bled underneath.
