Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Relax….. you’re on LAKE TIME!  Customize a glass clock with etchall® and create something one of a kind for your vacation place – you can change it to “BEACH TIME”, “CAMPING TIME”, etc.!  Customize your creation further with a bit of subtle stamped landscaping for a faux etched effect to complement the etched lettering. (And... yes.... I see the mistake.   But I did not, in fact, see it until after the project was completed, the post shared, and the clock was hanging in our cottage!  On to version 2 with the correct spelling! Oh well - I'm HUMAN too! lol...)
 
Materials:
 
Instructions:


Select the fonts for your lettering, and print the letters to fit in the 2” glass area around the clock. 

Cut out the letters and determine spacing on the clock.  Enlarge or reduce font size as desired. 

Use paper letters as a template to cut out lettering
from echmask™.  Mount etchmask™ letters onto clock. 




Use paintbrush to apply thick coat of etchall® cream.  Let set 15 minutes.  Return cream to bottle.  Use wet paper towels/sponge to carefully remove remaining cream from glass.  Peel off lettering.  


Masking areas where you don’t want the stamping, use Stampscapes stamps inked with Charcoal Palette ink to stamp scenes on left and right sides of clock.  When the ink dries, the effect is very subtle and even looks like a very detailed etched image.
