Etched Glass Honey Bee

Have you ever created a scrapbook embellishment using glass?

I made a honey bee themed journal for my sister and wanted to make the inside as unique as the outside so I created one today using etchall® etching crème!

Time to play...

I used a die from my stash to cut a honey bee out of vinyl. 

After it was weeded I transferred the bee to a 2" square piece of glass.  You can see that I completely covered the back of the glass with tape to protect it from the etching process. 

I covered the entire design area with etchall® etching crème. This jar of crème has darkened from white to a dark brown but it still etches beautifully!  After waiting 15 minutes, I scraped the etching crème back into the original container - because it is completely reusable! I thoroughly rinsed the design... 

Note: do NOT rinse in a porcelain sink as this is an etching product and it will remove the glaze.

...before removing the vinyl to reveal the results!  

Just look at that beautiful detail!  I applied a double sided sheet of adhesive to the entire back of the glass slide and then adhered it to a piece of gold Rinea foiled paper.

It makes a stunning embellishment for this bee themed journal!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
