Lately, I have been seeing tons of adorable etched glass items. Lelan over at
Hello, Good Gravy made some really beautiful pencil jars as a back to school teacher gift! Lovely aren't they?!
Project by Hello, Good Gravy!
Thought I would give it a try myself. So I gathered up my supplies
Paint Brush, Punch, Glass, Etching Cream, Scissors, and Contact paper
Put my stencil on and added the cream
The first polka dot came out beautifully! But the rest didn't
What did I do wrong? Maybe I didn't leave the stencils on long enough. Maybe I left them on too long. Maybe you are not meant to go through the washing off process more than once. Maybe I didn't put on enough cream. Maybe I should use a foam brush next time.
The vase was only $1.00, so I don't feel so bad messing up on it. I'm looking forward to trying again!
