As a designer we get to try all kinds of cool craft products, often new and sometimes ones that have been
around for awhile. Etchall is one of those products from B&B Etching Products Inc. , a staple in the Craft Industry.
Etchall is a creme that when applied to glass, porcelain, ceramics or marble using a stencil and masking off areas
beautiful designs can be created! It is so easy!
I took an empty glass mason jar, used one of my favorite die cuts, a bird to create a stencil and
twenty minutes later I had an etched design on the jar. Added some candy or foam birds eggs, jar cover,
tied around ribbon, tulle and rafia, glued a nest on the top. A sweet tweet hostess gift or
centerpiece for the table in less than an hour! It is addictive, I love birds, thinking a whole set of glasses
Tips: Choose a die cut for a stencil that the area around the die cut will make a good stencil.
The etchmask vinyl will go through a die cut machine very easily.
With the bird stencil I also needed to use the little center piece between the legs.
Make sure you smooth the vinyl using the Etchall squeegee so there are no gaps,
I added extra strips to cover more of the surface to protect the remaining glass.
Then it is just a matter of adding the Etchall creme with the squeejee.
Wait fifteen minutes, scrape excess back in jar to reuse!
Wash off and remove stencil under running water, no muss, no fuss,
no smell. Dry and admire!
In the above photo you can see how important adding the extra detail stencil piece was.
If not my bird would have had a stump for legs! I can't wait to try some more projects!
