Glass Etching Part II

The Stampendous! team is etching it this week with Armour Etch Glass Etching Cream and today is the big blog hop!!! You won’t even believe how easy this technique is. You’ll want to practice a bit on inexpensive pieces from the thrift store or your recycling barrel, but once you get the hang of it, it’s super easy to make custom, fantastic glassware and home decor items!

If you saw my lantern the other day then you will have seen how easy it was to customize a cheap little item from the dollar store. Today I took a little tea-light holder and added a little etching cream magic. 

So this was a little experiment with some masking tape and twine...

I put some masking tape on the glass first and I didn't like the results so I decided to wrap some twine around it and cover it with the etching cream. 

The result was this cool texture! I think it would be fun to experiment with different materials!! 

Here's the finished project again:
