I used contact paper, an exact-o knife, glass etching material (I found it at Michael's), and a set of cheap paintbrushes.
I first measured out a length of contact paper, sketched my friend's last name, and cut it out the negative space in the contact paper.
Then I realized that if I were to attach that piece to the pan, that I would be etching the name backward. So I peeled off the backing and stuck it to the back of another piece of contact paper of the same dimensions.
This was the result.
I forgot to take a picture of the next step, but it's super easy. I followed the instructions on the glass etching material, which was to paint the material over the letter cut outs. Apply a thick amount, and leave it on for 6 minutes (or however long the bottle says). Then, you wash off with water.
I got fancy (and tired of cutting out of contact paper), and starting free-handing these babies.
This is what the material looks like when it's sitting. It's just a thick white blob.
Here's two of the pans I made:
I'm sorry for the difficulty to see all of the details. It's hard to photograph these things.
