This is a mirror that I etched and then added a few painted details for a splash of color!
I used masking tape and then drew the pattern on the tape (my own design) and then cut it all out. Very time consuming and frustrating to get the right effect!! The type was printed from the pc and then cut out and then all of it was covered in the etching cream!



Whatcha think??

Good job!  It was definitely worth all your hard work.

This is probably a dumb question, but did you use etching cream on the colored ornaments?

It looks great!  It gives me an idea for a mirror.

Not a dumb question at all but no I didn't etch those areas, after etching I decided to add a splash of color and used some glass paints that I had laying around!

Thanks to all for the nice comments!
I have learned some things, well tricks, since this little brain numbing project but have not been able to do another!
Happy Etching!!

Jomio--It's similar to the hi pressure sand blowing but the end result is smoother. It's just a cream called Armour Etch that I either get online or at a local store. It only takes 5 minutes for the cream to work.

This is awesome!  I have been wanting to try etching for a while now.  I think I just might have to give it a go!
