Step 1 I began by painting the inside frame with Gesso becuase I wanted a White Background!!
Step 2 I folded the Doilies in half and glued the first layer to the frame!!! Noticed that I only Gesso painted what I needed.
Here is what the first Layer looks like!!
Step 2 you will then peel the backing off revealing the sticking side of the vinyl.
Step 6 Use the resits gel around the cut image. As you see above I used a paint brush to apply the Gel. The Gel begins green and when it drys clear which takes about 30 mins and this time depends all on how thick you applied it too. You are ready to apply your etching cream!!
Step 7 After the 15 mins have elapsed, you will scrap back off the etching cream and return it to the bottle for another etching. That is what is amazing about Etchall Creams and Dips. They are reusable which will lend you tons of etching projects.
Step 8 take your project and rinse under water the remaining etching cream and to remove the etching mask. It is much easier to remove the mask undeer water for it releases the adhesive.
Now here is my Etched Mirror that has been revamped!!! It went from a Thrift Store find to something simply divine!!! So I hope this inspires you to take those ugly things you have hidden and rethink the possibilities of what they can truly be!!!
