Thanks.  Yeah, they do look rather manky with the outlining.  DH was kind of giving funny looks as I was doing that, but he knows better than to say anything to me until the finished product.  Regardless, there was a method to my madness. Roll Eyes

I drew them onto the glass myself, but did have some pictures for reference so I would have an idea of what to aim for.  That is why you see some stray black smudges in some of the first few pics.  I was not happy with the first couple of attempts, wiped off the paint before it dried, and turned the canister onto the other side to try again.

I hope she does love them.  I think I'm tempted to get some more canisters and do either a Christmas design for treats for the neighbours (but I bought stuff to do their baskets with already), or do cows for my kitchen (I have a thing for cows).   Or get smaller ones and do jars for q-tips, cotton swabs, etc for the bathroom.

Holy bajesus. Those are phenomenal! I love the etched look, beautiful. Have you dabbled into etching cream before? Is it difficult at all? It's a little intimidating to me, but I would love to try. Cheesy You did a wonderful job. I'm sure she'll love them!

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

I had a few pictures for referenced, but did freehand draw the stencils onto the glass with the fabric paint.  You can tape the pictures to the back for a more definite guide too.  I did that the first time I used fabric paint to make a stencil - it was a fall of fuschia flowers on the side of the glass in a picture frame.  Turned out very pretty too, I wish I had a picture of that.

Thank you.  Using etching cream is EXTREMELY easy.  Just put your stencil on and make sure it is secure.  You can buy rub on stencils that are specifically designed for this, use contact paper to cut out a stick on stencil, or use fabric paint to make your own stencil.  Then, once the stencil is ready (for fabric paint, wait for it to dry, 1 day should do it), dab the etching cream over the areas you want dabbed, wait a bit (the noon news for me) and wash it off.  The rub on stencils, and the fabric paint peel off easily with the warm water.
