inspired by Onyxnox's etched unicorn canisters
, I decided I wanted to try glass etching. I have TONS upon TONS of glass vases, candle holders, etc., but I was kinda nervous about doing the etching. I finally went out and bought the cream and puffy paint (just like Onyx used) and let it sit. with Mother's Day coming up, I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do. at first, I thought about doing more jewelry for her. so, I set out to Wal-Mart to see if I could pick up something a little different to use with what I already had. I always love going to the aisle where they have vases and the fake flowers to see what glassware they have. and there it was; a thin purple vase. she LOVES purple. I decided this is what I was doing for her. I decided on the font I wanted and taped the printout to the inside of the vase and traced it with the puffy paint. I let it dry all night and finished it today.
we'll do this backwards so the correct picture shows first.
please ignore the date.
