Love is Bold

Bold and provocative, this design accentuates the character of the heart it lies upon. Everything you see here was achieved by the creative use of a corner stencil. We used an antique glass heart shaped decanter for this design. What will you find to boldly etch your heart upon?



Materials:

#15-0200 Armour Etch Glass Etching Cream.

#21-1691 Over N Over stencil- CORNERS

#08- 9606 Brushes.

#08- 9999 Gloves.

#08- 9415 Masking tape.

Soft paper towels.

Optional:

Tweezers, ruler, exacto knife and water soluble marker

DIRECTIONS:


1. Wash the item to be etched in hot, soapy dishwater and dry with a soft paper towel then wipe down design area with glass cleaner

2. You may want to mark the centerline of your item before you begin. With a ruler and a water soluble marker (not a sharpie) draw the centerline on the back side of the item. This makes it easier to create your design in the location you want it on the project.

3. Center the point of the corner stencil on the bottom of the glass with the sides reaching up in a V.

4. Using a popsicle stick or other dull instrument, press the stencil down gently to prevent the cream from getting underneath during etching.

5. Cover all the glass around the stencils with masking tape, overlapping all edges. Check for exposed spaces by turning the project over and holding up to the light. Cover enough area so that none of the rinse water will touch any of the other glass while rinsing as even the small amount of etching cream in the water will permanently haze the glass.

6. Put on the rubber gloves. Load the brush with Armour Glass Etching cream. PAT the etch cream onto the stencils (do not brush it on). Apply a thick enough layer of cream to the exposed design area that you can no longer see through it. . (View the directions HERE)

7. Leave the cream on for 5 minutes

8. Completely rinse off the etch cream under gently flowing temped water. Remove the stencils and masking tape and rinse again. Pat the stencils dry and return to the carrier sheet.

9. Wipe design area with glass cleaner. You may want to redraw centerline on the back of the project again. The next corner is placed above the first with just enough room for the side of a corner to fit between them. Cover the outermost flourish ends securely with masking tape.

10. Repeat steps 4 through 8.

11. Wipe design area with glass cleaner. You may want to redraw centerline on the back of the project again. Turn the stencil sideways and place alongside the upper corner design you just made. It should have one point almost touching the center of the bottom corner and the other reaching up to make the outside edge of the heart.

12. Cover the top flower of the corner securely with masking tape. Repeat steps 4 through 8, then do the same for the other side of the heart.

13. Wipe design area with glass cleaner. You may want to redraw centerline on the back of the project again. Turn the corner stencil on a 90 degree angle and place on one side at the top of the heart shape. Cover the outermost flourish ends securely with masking tape. Repeat steps 4 through 8, then do the same for the other side of the heart.

Additional Materials

Directions

  1. This design was etched in stages.The technique allows the use of a particular stencil image multiple times on the same project when you don't have enough to etch all simultaneously and it enables stencil images to be placed in closer proximity than the stencil borders would otherwise permit.
  2. This design also used a masking technique which allows for the selective use of certain parts of a stencil in specific locations.
  3. After preparing the glass, place the top corner point on the bottom of the heart and follow the etching cream instructions to etch the corner onto the glass.
  4. Turn the corner sideways so one point was near the center of the bottom corner and the other point reaches up to the top of the heart. Cover the center point with masking tape. Use the etching cream as before to etch this onto the glass. Repeat this on the opposite side. of the heart.
  5. Place the corner in the same position as the first time in the center empty space. Cover the outer parts of the corner with masking tape and use the cream to etch the center part onto the glass.
  6. Finish off the top of the heart with the center of the corner nestled in to the previously etched corner pieces as shown. Use the etching cream to etch this onto the glass to finish the heart.
