Glass Etching with Stamps

This week we’re having so much fun etching on glass with Stampendous Stamps and Armour Etch Glass Etching Cream. We hope you’ll give this fun media a try. When you use it with stamps, it’s just such an exciting and different way to create beautiful, and useful, home decor!

I got to work altering a cheap-ish tealight lantern I got from my local drugstore. Just FYI, I am no etching expert, this was my first time and I have to say I was pretty excited it turned out so well!! I followed the directions HERE ON THE STAMPENDOUS BLOG and this is how it turned out: 



Just a simple sentiment to enhance an already cool little lantern. (Cling Follow Your Art)


When I scraped the embossing powder it came off with my fingernail. You can see how well it worked as a resist, though.. 



I frosted the rest of the glass panels - which took no time - and the project was complete! 

Take a look at what this sassy lady did with the etching cream:

  12. I just love this, Tobi! I cannot Pin your photos for some reason, but this project is so cool. Saw some similar lanterns in Michaels on Clearance the other day and will have to go get some to try this. I think they'd be perfect on the patio with citronella candles in them! Thanks so much for playing with us today!
