  • Create your stencil image in Cricut Design Space.
  • Cut your stencil using your Cricut. Then weed out the design itself to create a stencil.
  • Use transfer tape to apply the stencil to your tumbler.
  • Use a blow dryer to heat up the adhesive, and then use your thumbs to press your stencil to your tumbler more securely.
  • Mask off the rest of the tumbler using painter's tape.
  • Apply the CitriStrip to your tumbler and let sit for 90 minutes.
  • Rinse off your tumbler and use a weeding hook to start pulling up some of the powder coating.
  • Use a washcloth to rub off the rest of the etched powder coating.
