Glass etching may look complicated, but it's actually quite easy...and fun! Giving a matted look to everything from mirrors to Mason jars is a great way to add a unique look to your home decor, and all you need is a few simple tools to get the job done.
With lots of great products and tools to pick from, the folks over at Etchall have everything you need to create amazing craft projects by simply etching glass. We were lucky enough to be able to play with some of it, and we LOVED all the fun stuff that we were able to make with the Etchall products!
Here's a little breakdown of what we used, and how to use these liquids and cremes to make your own amazing home decor, jewelry, accessories, and so much more!
Etching to Paint
This book is filled with 36 awesome etchware projects. With easy-to-read instructions and step-by-step photos, this book is great for the beginner, and I found it extremely useful for creating my own etched designs. Each designer in this book offers great tips and suggestions to help you as you work, and provides you with a detailed supply list so you'll have all the materials to help you get the job done.
Etchall Dip n' Etch Liquid
This awesome liquid gives permanent overall matte finish to glass, marble, ceramic, slate, and more! It's so easy to use and it can instantly transform your glass into something more muted and antique-looking. This product is best for covering large items, like Mason jars or vases. Once you've matted your glass, you can also paint right on the piece to add even more color and style. Best of all, this liquid is reuseable...so any liquid left over that you don't use can simply be returned to the jar to be used on another project. One thing's for sure, you get your money's worth with the Etchall Dip n' Etch Liquid!
Etchall Etching Creme
For creating designs on glass, mirrors, marble, slate, ceramic, and ink, you're going to need the Etchall Etching Creme. Best used with stencils of your choice, this creme gives a subtle decoration to your piece. Stencil glass coasters or add a decorative boarder around your mirror or sliding glass door. Etching creme is very easy to use and is made even easier when you use the tools given to you by Etchall, like the Squeegee and Detail Pick Tool. These items make etching all the more fun and give you the tools it takes to create something that looks professionally designed.
I couldn't wait to start playing around with the Etchall Etching Creme. I decided to create the little hummingbird coaster and, though I was nervous at first, I was so surprised at how EASY and fun this was! Here's how it happened:
First, gather your supplies.
Clean off your glass surface. Use a lint-free paper towel or cloth.
Then apply your stencil. You can use your own if you like, but I loved this little hummingbird from Etchall. Then I used the Squeegee to make sure my stencil was secure and there were no air bubbles in the stencil.
Then apply a heavy coat of Etchall creme. The consistency is similar to peanut butter, and a little goes a long way...then use the Squeegee to spread out the creme over the whole coaster. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
After time has elapsed, use the Squeegee to remove the majority of the creme and return it back to the jar.
Rinse the remaining creme off under warm running water.
Once all the creme is removed, remove the stencil and dry thoroughly.
And then you have a brand new coaster!
Finally, here are some beautiful projects made by Etchall artist, Julie McGuffee. I hope one of them inspires you!
