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!

Witches' Brew Etched Wine Glass


The time for all things spooky is fast approaching!  Create your own etched glass “witches’ brew” glass for lemonade, juice, soda, or even “spirits,” and have a little fun this Halloween season!    It’s easy with etchall®! 

Materials:

etchall® Reposition/Re-Use Stencil Spray
etchall® Etching Creme 
etchall® Squeegee 
etchall® Resist Gel 
ethcall® etchmask®
Alphabet stencils 
DecoArt® Frost Gloss Enamels™ - Green
Large wine glass - mine has a smoked glass stem & base and came from Dollar Tree
Permanent black marker 
Scissors 
Sea sponge 
Disposable paper/newspaper 

Instructions:


Cut individual letter stencils from large sheet of mylar alphabet stencils.  

Flip them over so the back side of each letter is facing upward on a disposable paper surface outside.  Hold the can of etchall® Reposition/Re-Use Stencil Spray 8-12 inches from the stencils.  Apply a light even coat of spray to each letter.  Let dry until tacky.  


Wash and dry large wine glass.  

Apply letter stencils, one letter at a time, to top area of glass and use permanent marker to fill in the lettering through each letter. 

Simply peel the stencil off the glass and set aside for later use.  Continue until you have spelled out “Witches’ Brew”.

The etchall® Reposition/Re-Use Stencil Spray allows you to easily adhere stencils to many surfaces, even curved surfaces like a glass or vase.   

Trace each letter with etchall® Restist Gel.  Let dry until clear.  




 

Cut a strip of etchmask with a wavey, curved edge.  Apply the etchmask beneath the lettering as shown.


Use squeegee to apply a thick coat of etchall® Creme to the area above the etchmask®, over the lettering.

Let set 15 minutes.   

Use squeegee to return creme to bottle for later use.  Wash glass to remove remaining cream.  While you are washing, the resist gel lettering, along with the marker, will release from the surface of the glass.

Remove etchmask.   Let glass dry thoroughly.   




Use sea sponge to lightly sponge the area beneath  the etching with Green Frost Gloss Enamels™.   Bake according to manufacturer instructions to permanently set paint.  

Fill with your favorite “witches’ brew” and have a bit of fun this Halloween season!
