Truth bomb: I’m a complete novice when it comes to etching glass. Recently, I was introduced to the world of glass etching, and I’m hooked! With just a stencil and a small bottle of etching cream, I was able to create this magnificent vase, and you can too. It only takes about twenty minutes to take a basic dollar store from boring and blasee to elegant and trendy. This would be a beautiful way to customize wedding centerpieces, and would also be a lovely gift for someone special in your life.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Clear Glass Vase
- etchall Etching Cream and Tool
- etchall Stencil Adhesive
- StencilGirl “Geometric Sky” Stencil
- Small paintbrush for details
- Optional, pigmented paste for coloring etched areas
I applied the now adhesive stencil to the front of my vase, and used the etchall squeegee tool to press over the entire design. This helps the stencil to adhere firmly to the glass.
Time for the etching cream! I carefully applied about a tablespoon of etchall cream to the surface of the vase, and used the squeegee tool to disperse it evenly. The etching process begins immediately, so working efficiently in this step is a must. Then, I let the vase sit undisturbed for fifteen minutes.
I rinsed the vase thoroughly with water, (do this in a plastic tub, since the etching cream can damage a glazed sink!), and dried it. Then, I repeated the entire process on the BACK of the vase as well.
When I rinsed away the cream, the completed vase was nothing short of a marvel to me. It’s just like something I would find department store! This project is so fast and simple to create, and with an outcome like this, I can’t wait to create more beautiful etched glass projects.
