Etching on a Glass Vase


One of my favorite crafty projects is etching on glass. This ancient practice takes on a superbly modern twist with wonderful etching products available in local craft stores.   One of my favorite etching products is a cream called Armour Etching Cream.  I simply applied it to the glass, followed the manufactures recommended drying time and rinsed it off.  Simple, easy and not much expertise needed - promise ;)

I created this project for Spellbinders Paper Arts and Favecraftsblog.com.  There is a full tutorial on the etching technique I used with Spellbinders die templates.  You can read all about it here:


Here is a close-up of the pretty design:


Have a fabulous weekend filled with gorgeous sunshine and tons of crafty time!

Kazan - Beautiful project. I forget how wonderful glass vases look when they have been etched. Makes an inexpensive piece look so rich.

I love fresh flowers in my home Desire - I love it even more when Hubs get them for me *lol*. Have a great day!

Marcie you are so right - I think the vase cost me less than $4 at Michaels. I like how easy it is to personalize my own home decor! Hugs
