Etchall/Stencil Girl Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm participating in a blog hop using etchall® products and a Stencil Girl stencil.

Here's the stencil that I chose from Stencil Girl.  It's Birds & Bunnies.  It's perfect for spring and Easter.

Since these stencils don't have an adhesive backing, you have to apply one.  Etchall® stencil spray works great for this.
Follow the directions on the spray to create the adhesive backing, then adhere it to the surface.  I decided to create a stenciled glass jar that I can use to hold flowers, candies or a candle.
I applied the stencil spray rather heavily to insure a good seal, then I smoothed the stencil down with the squeegee.  This stencil has finely cut pieces that have to be adhered to give the detail.

Here's how it turned out:
All the details in the stencil showed up well, but I wanted to add a little color to this bunny.  I used Rub 'n Buff in Pewter to add some color.

Here's another photo to show the bunny a little better.

And, here's a close-up:

I decided to use the small bird stencil, too.  I had a maple syrup bottle that I thought would be perfect to upcycle.
Here is the small bird stencil affixed to the bottle with etchall® stencil spray.  I used the squeegee to press the stencil down to the glass.  Then, I added masking tape around the stencil to protect the glass from stray crème.
Then, I applied the etchall® etching crème.
I waited 15 minutes, then scraped the extra crème back in the bottle to use again later.  I rinsed off the remaining crème and removed the tape and stencil.  After etching, I used Rub 'n Buff in Patina to color the etching.  Then, I tied some string around the top and added some beads.

I love how these two pieces came out.  Now, I'll be looking around for more glass - or slate, ceramic or mirror - to use the remaining stencils.  What a great combination - etchall® products and Stencil Girl stencils!
