~~**A Majestic Holiday Scene using ETCHALL**~~

Today I have a tutorial from ANGELA HOLT DESIGNS
using the awesome product from Etchall

Etchall etching crème is a re-usable crème that produces
a white opaque, permanent etched finish on glass, mirror,
ceramic, porcelain, marble and slate.
I ran across this awesome majestic picture sometime ago and my brother loves deer so I saved it for a future project with him in mind... but knew I wanted to add more to it... so next came to mind were woods and trees... thats when I combined 2 pics into one with the help of my CAMEO and I created this beautiful scene using ETCHALL!!! Once I combined the images I cut them out and then weeded out the image using the pick tool.

 Next I applied the transfer tape and adhered it to the patteren...
The transfer tape allows you to transfer the pattern onto your project piece... and the great thing about Etchall is you can find all these products on their website for all your etching projects!

Here is the reverse image on the tranfer tape before I applied it to the glass!

Now once applied you MUST work out the air bubbles to get a seal onto your project piece.... you don't want any bubbles to allow the ETCHALL to seap under the vinyl. Use the squeegee, found at etchall, to work out those air bubbles... after all you don't want to make an oopsy!!! Once you have your image applied peal back the transfer tape carefully... Go back over the vinyl again to work out additional air bubbles once you have removed the transfer tape. This asures a good seal!!!

Next you want to apply the cream on... working out it all over with the squeegie and the secret is to apply the cream on THICK LIKE PEANUT BUTTER... hehehehe! I love that :D
Leave on for 15 minutes!!!

Now the COOL THING about ETCHALL... you simply scrap
off the cream once the time is up and return it to the
jar for more uses on other projects!!!


Next step... HEAD TO THE SINK and give your etched piece
a real good rinsing to remove the excess left behind!!!

Once all the etching cream has been rinsed begin peeling away your vinyl stencil and discard it. I like to give the etched piece an additional rinsing once I have removed all the stencil!!!

 Here is my holiday Majestic Holiday Scene using Etchall... now you can
begin decorating your own etched piece anyway you'd like!!!
