This week citymade is branching out and trying some glass etching projects.
We started out by doing our research and taking a trip to Hobby Lobby to find some etching cream. Our next step was to find and create stencils to use.
For our first project we used a glass container that once held a delicious Tikka Masala simmer sauce. We chose a tree design for this project and drew a tree freehand on paper and then cut it out. Using a glue stick, we glued the tree to the glass.
To do the actual etching we used a paint brush and brushed on a thick layer of etching cream around the tree. After 60 seconds we rinsed off the cream and…voila.
Adding a candle was the perfect finishing touch for this glass.
