Sometimes we think things are way more difficult then they are, so we don’t try them! That is how I felt about glass etching, but I was seeing all these neat things with glass etching and I wanted to try it! Locked and loaded with my Hobby Lobby coupon off, I went! I got the glass etching cream and contact paper from the dollar store.
Once, I got home I got busy with my punches. I found out that the smaller punches work better than the larger ones. I think you read/hear how artist say you have to make it your own all the time. So, that is what I did.
Here are my projects: First a sweet and simple pendant- with an etched butterfly and the word brilliant on it!
Then I turned up the heat a little with this one:
I used one of my collages and etched stars on the glass.
Glass etching turned to be pretty simple and fun! I can’t wait to do some more!
One last thing, I want to show you a sweet and simple bracelet I made.
The vanilla flower is a button that was a gift from my friend Erin K.
Hope your day is sweet and simple!
Tomorrow is the last day of school! I think, I am counting down just as much as the boys!
