When Young House Love posted this about glass etching, I promptly added etching creme to my mile-long (
just kidding, but seriously, we're on a strict budget and my mom spoils me) Christmas list of things to have my mom buy me so I didn't have to buy them for myself. And as expected, she came through!
Armed with YHL's instructions, I set out to make a gift for my sister's 21st birthday. I found a $4 pitcher at Ross - made for beer most likely, but I thought it would be good for margaritas.
You guys - my mom is awesome - she reads my blog (as does the whole fam! thanks!) and knows of my crafty fantasies. She got me not just one Xacto knife - but a whole freaking set. With it's own special box. With replacement blades. ahhhhhhhh........
I completely used YHL's steps - but here are pictures of my pathetic attempt anyway! I too used painter's tape for my stencil - although mine was totally old and had lost some of it's stickiness. So better tape would have helped - I had a bit of bleeding.
I waited about 5 minutes - and it was starting to eat the tape edges - and it was super stinky!! But it definitely etched! Not as much as I would have liked, but it still turned out pretty cute!
Anyone etched anything fun lately?? I've got some cream to use!
