Glass Etching Delight!
I once heard that glass etching was really easy. For some reason I fought that concept and kept putting it off thinking there would be a lot to figure out. I WAS SO,SO WRONG! I decided to pick up a package of good ol' Martha Stewart's Glass Etching cream. It is BEYOND EASY!!! I tested it on a jar I had at home with some masking tape and followed the directions on the package. IT WORKED! EXACTLY HOW SHE SAID IT WOULD! Thanks, Martha! Since I was planning a little craft-luncheon with my mother-in-law and some of her friends I thought this would be the perfect project. IT WAS! I grabbed some stickers and boarders (from the scrapbook section) and some glass coasters. The ladies LOVED IT! My daughter (6) also did! She used heart stickers and peace signs to decorate a $1 store candy dish. GO GET THIS PRODUCT! It's WORTH IT! (at $24 a bottle it is worth digging up a coupon though) **************** Now of course you don't think I would just buy a packaged product and be content with it's intended results do you?? I wanted to see what this cream would do on colored glass. I bought an inexpensive glass candle holder and put one of the stickers I had found on it. It was a BIG FAIL! I also tested the curing rate at different times to see if that would make a difference. Nope. It still failed. Just listen to Martha and follow her instructions on this one.
