I've been trying to do a faux etched glass using a stencil & spray paint, but I'm having problems. I'm using painter's tape & cutting out the stencil I want & it's working great, but when I peel it off the paint is sticking to the tap & either chipping away from the stencil I have or the design is coming off completely with the tape. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?? I'm thinking of trying to put some vaseline on the painter's tape at the edges of the design in the hopes that I'll get the paint in the design & not stuck to the painter's tape. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Smiley

I didn't know you could do that.. does the paint come off eventually? I would just get a small bottle of Armour Etch and a cheap brush and etch it.

Are you using the special glass paint? It's sold at Michael's in the same area as the Armour Etch.
