Etched mirror


 Good evening all hope everyones having a great day
And a big Happy Thanks giving to all my American friends.

I have made a beautiful mirror for my little sister she wants a 
girly bedroom so I thought I would put her name on it.

Using Etchall 

I used some large letters and put them down the side,

I then marked the wood to were I wanted the tape to be
giving me a nice block.

 I then added some masking tape i would recommend you tape all that you don't
want etched.
I then added the creme to the tape and pulled it over the glass and covered
all of the glass to be etched.








Then after the 15 min wait scrap all the creme off and add back to 
the bottle. Which gets darker the more you use.

 Then I used a tissue to wipe the rest of and a glass cleaner
then took of the tape.

This is how it looks after cleaning.




I then painted the frame and stand 2 shades of 
pink once dry added some lace, flowers, and bling
all from my stash.



Now as its coming to the end of the month
etchall.com Are doing a great offer

 Thank you for all the wonderful comments
and any new followers.
Love to you all

Using Etchall and mica powders

Hi guys hope you are all well, sorry I have not been on  since 
Going to the NEC I have not been to good.
But now better.I got loads of goodies and had a fantastic time with Tina,
Now to this blog. have not re etched befor thought it would be a good idea. 

I used the Dip'n'etch liquid for this one as the jar is small,
I took my a plastic bowl and added the jar, then I filled the bowl
with water till the jar was covered, and marked the bowl with a marker so
I could see where I needed to put the dip.








Once the dip is added you leave it for 15 min,
Then you take the jar out shake off excess liquid.  




Once this is done using a bottle cut of top and use as a funnel 
to pour dip back into bottle (ALWAYS ADD IT TO ITS OWN BOTTLE)
and you have it for next time, that's what's great is you can reuse over and over.






Now You have done that take your bottle and wash off the dip,
then dry it well.


Now I have the bottle etched and dry I added some Versa mark to the bottle
and dabbed some mica powder over using gold and perlised white 
I did this all round the bottle and then keepet dabbing till all the bottle is done.

Then I added some embellishments to finish.
Pop over to Etchall they are doing free p&p on $100.or more

And don't forget to tell them I sent you when you get to the checkout.

Thank you for stopping by
