Use the free SVG file linked above to cut out in reverse on your personal cutting machine.

Weed and apply transfer tape.

Place the vinyl on the back side of the glass plate.
This can be a bit difficult due to its large size.
The wrinkles and air bubbles don't matter as long as they are away from the areas to be etched.

Coat all the exposed areas with Etchall Etching Cream and allow it to sit for 15 minutes.
Return as much etching cream to the container as possible because it is reusable.

Rinse in warm water, remove vinyl, and then wash thoroughly.
