Use these to fill with homemade lotions, body washes, or even decorate canning jars for Xmas salts or homemade food items. Make your own etched candle votives too!
Tada! A pretty etched glass bottle or jar.
This sounds like a great idea, though I must confess I have no idea what an "etching medium" is. I expect you could also do pretty much the same thing with a Dremmel, though I've never tried... and you would surely want to wear eye protection and a face mask that would keep you from breathing the ground glass. I expect there are precautions which must be observed using an etching medium as well. If that stuff will etch glass you probably don't want it on your hands (or in your eyes).
I seen in a furniture store like glass wine bottles and they were frosted then things put on them they were beautiful am wondering how they did them does anyone have any ideas. they had also drilled hole in back and put lights in them.
On TV`s All Year Round With Katie Brown(A&E) on Sundays I`ve seen her do stencilling using the etching medium(bought at most craft stores) As a matter of fact:Last Sunday she made glass planters etched with the names of herbs she planted. It was easy and really beautiful.Check either A&E (for May 22/05) or Katie Brown`s show
Great tip, thanks for sharing!
This is like a paint that gives the illusion of etching, so no, eye protection is not needed! Can anyone tell me if this is washable or does it just wash off? I'm trying to put my own designs on drinking glasses.
