Lumps or crystals in the Etch Cream can occur and is not an indication that the product is no good. It is a normal occurrence, particularly if the bottle has been sitting for a long period of time. To correct the problem, check to see that the cap is on the bottle securely first, then immerse in hot tap water for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir the cream with a plastic spoon. The warmth of the water will smooth it down. You may have to repeat the process if you have a large, full bottle. Never add water to the cream, do not stir with a metal spoon and do not use water hotter than the tap. Some crystals may never fully dissolve. If you still find crystals when you apply the cream to the stencil, simply take the brush and push them off onto the solid part of the stencil material so it does not leave a marred spot in your design.
