They're making burgers out of your old toothbrush bracelet now???

13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Death Chef Apron w/ Skull & crossbones & spiked studs on: January 16, 2004 04:03:48 PM
I made an apron for my chef roommate for christmas this year:

At my local cooking store, I found a white cotton apron for $4.  I dyed it black with Rit Dye.

I used iron-on letters I had laying around the house for the wording.

I found a good skull & crossbones in a clip art gallery and blew it up and traced it with white felt (25c) and cut it out and stitched it on with embroidery thread (33c).

I bought these metal spike studs at the local craft store in the leather-working section (i guess punk rock has totally been homogonized, huh?) and I hammered them on.  They were kind of expensive, at like $6, but I only used half of them.

But hey, my roommate liked it!

Sorry the pictures are so big, I'll resize them on Monday.

etching cream online... (click for linkage--or go to www.etchworld.com and click "glass etching supplies")

their smallest bottle 3oz is $7.50US.  That's pretty decent!
hope this helps?

I'm a little frustrated with this etching business. I'm really excited about it, but the smallest bottle of etching creme that Ben Franklin Crafts carries is a $32 bottle. I just don't have $32 to spend on etching creme right now, so does anyone know of a place online maybe that sells it a bit cheaper?

I bought mine at Michael's just a few days ago, and the guy who helped me find it said to tell the cashier i wanted to use their 40% coupon. Perhaps their sale is still going? Smiley
I just wish we had a Michael's around here... Sad

Weird, the Ben Franklins here in Richmond all sell the etching cream in 2 sizes:  the $9.99 size and the $18.99 size.  Are you talking US$ or CDN$?  Maybe ask the clerks if you can order a smaller bottle?

i bought a glass plate and i want to put a simple skull and crossbones on it that says poison under it.  i have sticker letters but was wondering if i made a paper cut out of the skull and glued-sticked it to the plate and etched it, would it work?

any thoughts or suggestions?


I'm in agreement with the person who said "use contact paper."   Glue sticks and paper won't give you a good seal, and the etching cream might seep through the paper.  Good luck!

see what i mean?  it's all streaky.  what happened?  the only thing i can think of is that i did it twice (i put the etching cream on twice, i mean).  i'm thinking i'm going to buy another couple of glasses and try this again!  sigh.  thankfully, the glasses were only 2$ each, so i'm not too upset!  =)

Gen:  Yeah, I think the putting-the-etching-cream-on-twice must be the problem?  Since yours looks so good, I would be inclined to make Mom & Dad's like you made yours.  Plus, the etched-bar looks great.

Good luck!  Sorry about the $4 loss!     Sad
