Start by very carefully cleaning the glass of your French press so that the etching cream is able to work. Then you’ll have to create some stencils with painter’s tape. I chose to create a really simple geometric pattern. If you’d like to do something similar, just cut small geometric shapes from the tape and stick them onto the glass parts of the French press, evenly spaced.

Then you just need to apply the etching cream. Pay attention to the directions on the bottle. But basically, you’ll need to apply the etching cream with a paintbrush over the glass and then rinse it off with water. Use a sponge if necessary. Let it dry and then remove the painter’s tape stencils. That’s it! Now you have a one-of-a-kind French press to¬†add just a little something extra to your at-home coffee drinking experience or gathering.
