Etchings


Creating Stencils for Etching.

Wanted to etch some wine glasses with a fleur de lis for some family friends.  Picked up some wine glasses at the Dollar Tree along with some contact paper.

Then I found online a nice outline of a fleur de lis and using my Silhouette Cameo I cut the design out using the contact paper.

Prepared the glasses by cleaning them with rubbing alcohol.  Then after the design was weeded and there was just an outline it was ready to be etched.
Then I just taped each stencil to a wine glass and put the etching cream on the glasses.

Once they sat for 5-10 mins I just rinsed them off.  They turned out wonderfully.
