Etched Glass Beach Bottles with etchall® etching crème

I grew up on Florida's Gulf Coast and I am drawn to all things beachy so when I came across glass bottles with fancy stoppers - seashells and seahorses - I scooped them up!  Making the bottles as fancy as the stoppers was quick and easy with etchall® etching crème.

Time to play...

I used this Peel & Stick Stencil on a previous project. (details here) 



I always wash my glass with warm soapy water and then wipe it down with rubbing alcohol before adhering the stencil.  I wanted to create a little frame around the focal image so I left about 1/4" around the outside of the stencil before protecting the rest of the glass with tape.  


I  covered the area with etchall® etching creme and let it sit. 


After 15 minutes, I carefully scraped the crème back into its original container because it is completely reusable.


I thoroughly washed the design to remove any residue... 

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

...before removing the stencil to reveal the design.  


More stencils and bottles... 


...repeat the same steps... 


...and the same magic happens... 


...every single time!


I wrapped the neck of the tall bottle with twine and tied on some turtle charms... 


 ...before filling them with potions and lotions!
