Permanent Recipe with a Little Etching
I make a lot of bread for my family. It’s become a fairly regular thing and I always use the same recipe, so you would think that I would have it drilled into my memory, but alas, I can’t seem to memorize it. So every time I want to mix up a batch, I have to go find where I’ve put the recipe, once again. And since I can’t seem to keep it in my head and I always mix the bread in the same bowl, it only made sense to etch the directions right onto the bowl. No more recipe hunting and lots more bread are in our future!
Things to do:
1. Using a die cutting machine or by sketching and cutting by hand, cut the words for the recipe out of the contact paper to create a stencil.
2. Cut the stencil into strips and smooth onto the bowl, working out any bubbles.
3. Apply a thick coat of etching cream with the paintbrush. Allow it to sit for a few minutes.
4. Peel the contact paper off of the bowl and rinse the cream away with warm water (wear rubber gloves!) to reveal the etched words.
5. Wash and dry before using.
