...and waited 15 minutes before scooping the créme back into the original container (it is reuseable!) and rinsing off the remainder.
NOTE: Do NOT rinse in a porcelain sink as this is an etching product and it will remove the glaze!
I applied Rose Gold Metallique Wax to the etched image before I removed the etchmask® stencil.
Add a ribbon and voila - a simple and elegant ornament with a vintage feel!
As I was playing with the tiles, I suddenly realized that the raised edge gave me the opportunity to use a different product - etchall® dip 'n etch! I grabbed another tile and stencil and started to play...
I used the transfer tape from the etchall® etchmark ComboPak and centered the bird on the tile.
Because the tile had a lip, I realized that I could pool some dip'n etch liquid in the center of the tile. I think I have decided that the optimal tool for this technique is a pipette - which I didn't have. No worries, I grabbed a straw and it worked just fine!
I waited 15 minutes then poured the dip 'n etch back into the original container and thoroughly cleaned off the tile. I left the stencil in place and waited for it to dry. You can't tell in this picture, but the etched surface has a very matte finish and the outer edge is still covered with a shiny ceramic glaze.
I dipped a small amount of the Metallique Wax out and then rubbed it into the tile surface. As expected, it did not adhere to the shiny, glazed edge.
After a little more buffing I removed the vinyl and attached a ribbon to reveal an ornament with a completely different look thanks to etchall® dip 'n etch.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
