I'm here today for etchall® to show you another way to use their amazing products. Today I'm using etchall® dip 'n etch. It's one of my favorites because it's so easy to use.
I'm etching some interesting glass beads that I found at JoAnn's.
I put them in a plastic cup and covered them with etchall® dip 'n etch.
Now, these beads have the softened look of sea glass.
These would make some fun jewelry, but I love the look of a sea glass mobile, so that is what I decided to create.
I didn't have a piece of driftwood, but I did have some commercial driftwood pieces. You can find them in the floral section of your favorite craft store.
I tied on lengths of C-lon cord to the wood piece with overhand knots and ladder-stitched the pieces of glass down the lengths of cord. Ladder stitching is just putting the cords into the bead from opposite directions. In between the glass beads, make overhand knots. Then, on the ends, I tied on silver fish beads.
Here's my mobile hanging in my herb garden:

So, if you have a yearning for a bit of the sea in your life, but can't make it to the beach to gather some sea glass, make your own with etchall® dip 'n etch. It's so easy!
(As a member of the Etchall Design Team, I received product with which to work. But, I wouldn't be a part of it, if I didn't love the product. Hope you'll try it!)
