Natural Stone etching with etchall® etching crème

For my etchall® Design Team project this month I wanted to show how easy it is to personalize natural stone with etchall® etching crème.

The ceiling fan on my porch has 2 pull chains - one for the light, one for the fan - and I am constantly mixing them up.  Quick, easy and stylish solution? Create a decorative chain pull ornament using  a natural stone pendant I found in the jewelry section of the local craft store.  Even better - personalize it with etchall® etching crème.

Time to play...

Strolling down the aisle of the same craft store I was just tickled to find a set of Peel & Stick Painting Stencils with a beachy theme!  I chose the seahorse design and positioned it on the stone pendant.


I protected the rest of the pendant with tape then completely covered the design area with etchall® etching crème. I waited 15 minutes before scraping the crème back into the original container (because it is completely reusable) and thoroughly rinsing the design.

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

I used Ebony Rub n' Buff to add color to the etched image. 


I finished it off with twine and a pretty bead...


...before adding it to the ceiling fan!


DIY home dec projects are fun and easy with etchall® etching crème!

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