In this video, you’ll learn how to etch tumblers with Citristrip and custom stencils in the two best ways I’ve found! Custom tumblers are popular craft projects and I know you love them. After lots of experimenting, I’m excited to share the safest, easiest, and most reliable ways to etch tumblers with Citristrip paint stripper! The gel will reveal the metal just where you want it, creating a really beautiful look. Technically, this isn’t really etching the metal, but it is etching the powder coating, I suppose! I’ll show you how to use my free stencil designs and how to create your own amazing Citristrip tumblers!
