Recently I was invited to try glass etching with etchall®. It was a technique and a product that I had never tried and I was a bit skeptical. I like to try new things, but my preference is quick and easy with great results. I imagined glass etching as messy, smelly and requiring hazmat gear and lots of ventilation!

Next, I found a vase and a stencil from supplies I had.
This is an Americana® Gloss Enamels® Resusable Stick-onStencils™ from
Here's the end result:
I hope you'll try this technique and product. You can find the etchall® etching creme as well as their other products at www.etchall.com
