Start by making sure that your wine bottles are clean and dry, and that the labels and glue are completely removed.
Make stencils from electrical tape. Draw letters on top of electrical tape with a pen. Then, carefully cut out your stencil with a craft knife. You can stencil the words “oil” and “vinegar” or come up with your own design.
Apply your tape stencil to the jar. With a cloth between your hands and the jar (so you don’t get fingerprints on it), smooth down the tape stencil so there are no gaps or air bubbles. Use long strips of tape to divide areas and make stripes on your jars.
Follow the instructions on the etching-cream package for washing the cream from the glass. When the glass is wet, it’s hard to see the etched area. Don’t worry — if you followed the instructions from the etching cream, it worked just fine!
