Good morning! Its another exciting post for me, as I can share with you this fun technique with Spellbinders Impressabilities! I used glass etching cream and a small mirror to create a beautiful candle plate.
For this tutorial, I am going to show you on a glass ornament, which also takes the glass etching cream beautifully! (hey, there is another great Christmas present idea! :))
You will need:
- Spellbinders Impressabilities
- Gloves to protect your hands
- Glass Etching cream
- Foam brush
- Repositionable adhesive (recommend 3L)
- Glass object
- Paper to protect your work surface
Start by placing repositionable adhesive on the back of your Impressabilities. I am recommending the green dot runner from 3L because it comes off easily when you wash the glass etching cream off at the end of this process. Make sure that you have the Impressabilities COMPLETELY adhered and flat against your glass surface.
Put gloves on to protect your hands and work in a well ventilated area. Apply the cream thickly to the entire glass surface. This will not harm your Impressabilities.
Look at the pile of cream in the top left—see how thick it is? Your ENTIRE glass surface should be covered like this. Leave the cream sit for several minutes. The directions say less, but the longer it sits, the better the pattern from the Impressabilities appeared. Once time has passed, wash the cream off the glass and the Impressabilities. The glass will be permanently etched.
Here is another view of the glass etched mirror. Hope you had a good long weekend! Tomorrow the little man starts pre-school, so its a busy day making sure we have everything ready to go for the morning. I am excited for him and his new adventure, but we shall see how I really feel tomorrow after I drop him off! :) thanks for stopping by!
