yup.  this is how I do my etching.  the puffy paint makes it SO easy.  but I learned it from another user on here.  Wink

you have a hell of a lot more patience than I do.  I try to do simple designs.  these are FANTASTIC!!!!!!  go you and your patience!!!

I also got this technique from a Craftster user, Onyxnox, in the post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=211082.0. I apologize for not giving her credit earlier! I love her unicorn canisters. I've been using this method to do glass etching for about a year now and it's great for me because I'm much better with a paint bottle than I am with scissors or a knife.

ha ha.  yup.  that's who I was referring to.  Wink

you still rock at doing such intricate details with a bottle of puffy paint type stuff.

Thats a unique way to produce a glass etching stencil.  I could never do it that way, I don't have enough patience.  I use advanced stencil creating methods.  Good job

I will be posting one of my etching projects so check it out.

Yes! I am definitely going to have to try this--looks good for things that have lots of detail, I normally just use contact paper.

Great job - I really like the idea of doing the skeletons, completely unusual, and your end product looks great too.

That whale one reminds me, I want to make some Haida art glasses at some point - thanks for the reminder!
