Glass Etching

Ok.  I’ve been wanting to try this for years.  Don’t know why it took me this long to try it!  It’s amazing and easy.  Grab your glass jars and get to work!  Takes less than 30 minutes to create this project.  
Martha Stewart Craft line is quite simply the best.  I love her products so much and this new Glass Etching line is awesome!  The greatest find was her new ADHESIVE STENCILS.  Oh. My. Goodness. They are a dream to use.  I love them so much.  Easy to apply and easy to peel off.
Here are the products I used:

So here are the two projects I did.  I needed a Sugar Jar makeover and wanted to do a cute Dish Soap one for my sister Sarah who’s moving to a new home.  I love the way they turned out.
 Hope you do too!  Here’s the tutorial:
Step 1:  Go to your local flea market or thrift store and hunt down the glass aisle.  Pick up your “treasure” and head home.
Step 2:  Wear plastic gloves and an apron in a well ventilated area and decide on your design.
Step 3: Clean and dry glass before proceeding.  Use rubbing alcohol for the best, cleanest surface.

Step 4: Apply your design on the clean, dry surface.
Step 5: Apply a thick layer of the Glass Etching Cream then wait 15 minutes.
TIP:  Definitely go thicker than this photo.  You want a good thick coat for it to take.  
Step 6: After 15 minutes rinse with warm water.  Dry with a paper towel.  Then peel off the stencils and store until your next project.
YAY!  The sugar jar is back in business!
Here’s a Jar I made for myself…after all, it’s my birthday in a few days!
“L” for LAURIE!

My “go-to” treat…GUMMY BEARS!

Step 7: Fill your glass item with things you enjoy.  My photos aren’t the best because I used my iPhone but you get the idea.  It really is so cute and such an easy project.  Hope you all go “creating” today.
