My sister's mother-in-law buys our children the most thoughtful gifts for Christmas every year. The only problem: I almost always forget to get her something! Well, this year was going to be different. I came to North Carolina armed with my Silhouette and some etching cream.
Sue (or Seuss as we like to call her) is a wonderful baker, so I decided to make her a baking pan with her name on it.
I often get so frustrated when I leave a pan somewhere (and I can't remember where) or some anonymous person leaves a pan at my house. Anonymity no more for Seuss when she brings a baked good to a friend!
This was my first try etching on glass and I loved it! I started with my design in Silhouette and flipped it horizantally.
Then I applied a thick layer of the etching cream with a paint brush.
I washed the etching cream off after 5 minutes and peeled away the vinyl. Voila!
I also made a glass for our neighbor who brews his own beer. He stops by with free beer for us periodically (thanks Joe!)
I'll be doing many more of these projects in the future... I think they make great gifts! What do you think?
