41  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Pear & Blueberry Etched Jars on: April 03, 2008 06:53:52 PM
Thanks for the lovely comments! 

The masking tape works pretty good, although if the bit of tape on the jar is too small, they have a tendency to shift or even slide off.  The outlines worked best, but are a lot of work.  I made a teeny set of jars with monsters (inspired by http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/samhain06/missmonster.htm) and the little tiny circles for eyes wandered off sometimes. 

Also, I'd recommend extra wide masking tape so I wouldn't have to make rows and rows of it to cover a larger area.

Thanks for posting that link.  Like I said I really wanted to try etching, but to be honest I'm not crazy about the stencils you find in the etching section at the craft store.  And I didn't want to invest in an etching kit either.  So this gives me instructions and the patterns are endless by using the masking tape. Smiley  Cool!

Thank you meaco! Smiley

Very kind of you to say. Coming from someone who does mosaics herself I am especially thrilled. Please post some of yours for Craftster members to check out. Smiley

Well, I must say that I am pretty partial to the mosaic and stained glass work on here!  I will post a few of my pics when I get my 10 post limit. Smiley Best of luck again!  Smiley

That's pretty cool!  I've been wanting to try etching and I like the idea of using masking tape for the stencil.  Smiley  Very nice!

I have a spot that gets really good light on the side of my house.  I have Black Eyed Susans in there which are perennials.  I like them because the blooms last a long time, usually straight thru until fall.  All you do is cut them down when they are done and they just pop right back up the following year.  I also like to get pansies in the fall they survive all thru winter and last a big portion of summer.  I'm not sure of your zone...I'm also in zone 7.  And I agree on the Vinca...I just got some the other day.  I've had a lot of luck at our local Lowes...a lot of them seem to know about the plants and just read the tags.  I usually keep them just so I won't forget. Smiley  Good luck!
