StencilGirl and Etchall Hop

Hi Stencil Friends.
Here we are at Day 2 of the StencilGirl and Etchall Hop.
In an effort to "reduce, reuse & recycle"
I looked around my house for objects to etch 
using these Etchall Products for our current Hop.

I found vases and glass frames galore... all possibilities....
 but settled on this broken white mug.

I cut the stencil to fit the size of the mug.
Following the directions on the product labels was pretty clear and easy.

Adding color to the etched design was not hard either.
The etching creme took the shiny glaze off leaving a rougher matte surface.
 I experimented with pens and different markers.

Fabrico Markers, Pitt Pens and Sharpies are what I liked using best.
Then I kept adding layers of color till I liked the finished results.

Voila'! A pretty pen holder for my art desk.

One lucky winner will receive an etchall® Glass Etching Bee-ginner Kit,
reposition/reuse stencil spray
AND a $25 Gift Certificate to StencilGirl Products!

  9. Now this was something new -- etching something that was a color! I know that Joe R. has said you could color the etching but I've never seen an example. How marvelous your broken cup looks! I thought it was a small vase at first.

  10. Janet, thanks so much for choosing my stencil Loopy Ladders for this beautiful 3D project! And thanks for spreading the word that stencils can be cut down for whatever specific project is at hand. May I have your permission to re-post this in my blog? -- giving full credit to you, of course. I may have given you my blog link already, but in case I didn't, here it is --

  11. Very cute Janet! I love that you found a creative way to repurpose a broken mug!

  12. what a great way to rescue the broken mug! I find it helpful to know that the etching works on ceramics, and what you used for coloring - thanks!

  13. How pretty and
    useful also!
