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!

Materials: 
  • Glass Salt & Pepper Shakers (these were less than $1 at a local big-box chain department store!)
  • etchall®(www.etchall.com)
    • Etching Cream
    • Resist Gel
  • DecoArt® (www.decoart.com)
    • Americana® Gloss Enamels® Stick-On Stencils™
      • Country
  • Loew-Cornell®(www.loewcornell.com)
    • Simply Art™ Brushes
  • Ribbon
Instructions:

Place rooster stencil onto center of one side of one shaker. Stencils will stick to the glass temporarily and can be removed for repeated use. Use paint brush to apply pply a layer of etchall® Resist Gel to in open area of stencil.

I wanted my second rooster to be facing the opposite direction, so for second shaker, flip stencil over. Reverse side will not adhere to glass, hold in place with fingers and carefully apply a layer of the etchall® Resist Gel.

Let dry until clear.
Use brush to apply a thick even coat of etchall® Etching Cream over remaining surface of each shaker. 

Let set 15 minutes. Return cream to bottle and carefully wash clean. If your resist gel did not come free when washing, it will easily scrape from the surface. Let dry.

Fill with salt & pepper, replace lids and tie ribbon around tops of shakers beneath lids.
