I cleaned the glass with soap and water, wiped it down with alcohol and dried it with a lint free cloth. I cut the stencils apart and placed them in a box before lightly spraying them with etchall® stencil spray. The spray makes the surface tacky and will adhere the stencil to glass, china, marble and slate.
I positioned the stencils on the glass, firmly pressing them into place before applying tape around the edges. I used the etchall® squeegee and the pads of my fingers to make sure they were all firmly adhered and that there were no air bubbles. I then applied the etchall® etching crème very thickly with the squeegee, covering the stencil area completely. I waited 15 minutes then used the squeegee to scrape the crème back into the original bottle because etchall® is completely reusable!
I thoroughly washed off the rest of the crème under running water before removing the stencil and tape.
NOTE: Do NOT rinse in a porcelain sink as this is an etching product and it will remove the glaze.
I repeated the process for the 2nd half of the table. After I etched a garden of flowers around the edge of the table...
...I decided to add some butterflies and dragonflies...
...using the same process...
...and ending up with the same beautiful results!
With a coat of paint for the frame the table was finished and ready for gifting!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
