etchall tutorial

Good afternoon everyone 
hope your all doing well,

I have had some very busy weeks so much to do
its fab to stay busy thought,
I am sorry this is a bit late I have been in pain with my neck and shoulder.

from doing to much lol
now back to the fun for you

As some of you might remember I was part of a small dt for Angela  Holt
and we showed you etchall the glass medium.

I am pleased to say I am now a part of there DT
as an Ambassador.
 So I will be bringing you some fab tutorials 
using all the different medium.
Here I have used both the Crème and the dip. 

This beautiful small cup and saucer started life as a very glossy 
and plain set. 

First thing make sure there is nothing on it grease ect,

I took the saucer and covered it in the crème 
and left it for 15 min I used a brush to cover the saucer

I took a large plastic container and put the cup in and 
then added water slowly till the cup was covered this step depends 
on how far up you want the etch I wanted the whole cup done.

once the water is to were you want it make a mark on the container,
as below.

once you have done tip the water out and dry both the cup and the container,
once dry add the dip'n'etch to the container then add the cup. 

Also leave for 15 mins

Once your 15 min is up using a pallet knife I used a plastic one
scrap the Crème back into the bottle.
then wash it off NOT IN A PORCELAIN SINK 
as this will take the gloss of.
a stainless steel sink is best or a plastic bowl.

Hope fully you can see it has left the saucer a matt and covered the gloss
this is best if you want to paint the surface. 

Now take the dip and pour it back into the bottle,
then rinse the cup as you did the saucer.

Once there both dry you now have a great surface
to do as wish. 

I took some purple acrylic paint and dabbed it all over the 
cup and saucer.
this is a great Technic that dry's very quickly. 

Then I took some purple lace ribbon and flowers and covered 
the saucer I used E6000 glue to keep the cup in place.
you can use loads of small flowers here as its a sweet size.
And this has a great home now as it was a gift for 2 amazing ladies
that have done a lot to help me of late so it i now on a dresser in the 
Heavenly hookers cafe. lol ye this is the name it is a crochet group. 

Thank you for stopping by I hope you have enjoyed 
this tutorial.

Thank you for all your amazing support 
and love.
Love & Hugs
