Glass Etching

I originally had a glass etching class scheduled for last Saturday, but due to a winter storm the class was rescheduled for Thursday.  Luckily the weather held out this time around.  We've still got a lot of snow on the ground, but the roads are clear.  

These are the two projects we made.  The dessert plate was made with embossing.  We stamped on the back of the plate with I {heart} Hearts, embossed them, and then put the etching cream on.  When you wash the etching cream off the embossing comes off, too.  Sometimes you have to scrub a bit, but it will eventually come off completely.

We also etched a candle holder.  This one was done with the Big Shot.  We ran some contact paper through the Big Shot with the Little Leaves die.  After removing the leaf, we stuck the "frame" down on the the candle holder and put the etching cream in the negative image.  This is a much cleaner (and less time consuming) method of etching.
