It's that time of year! Time to bring in the harvest! Around here we grow lots of tomatoes and basil. One of our favorite ways to eat them is a Caprese salad with layers of tomatoes and fresh mozarella topped with basil. And, of course, they must be dressed with some vinegar and olive oil.
I thought it would be nice to label the oil and vinegar bottles. It adds a nice personalized touch for a gift for friends or your own table.
I bought these bottles at Cost Plus World Market. They were very inexpensive ($3.99) And, I used some letter stencils from DecoArt®.
Apply the self-adhesive stencils. Use the etchall® squeegee to adhere the stencils to the glass. Then, mask around the stencil with tape and added etchall® etching creme. Wait 15 minutes and scrape as much of the creme off as you can and put it back in the jar. It's reusable! Wash the remaining creme off with running water before removing the stencil; then rinse the bottle again. Throw away the tape and place the stencil back on the plastic for next time.
And, here they are - ready for the salad!

Happy etching with etchall®!
