I'll be happy to show you the results and share what I learned in case you want to attempt this in the future. It was challenging to get a good picture since the overhead lights created glare and without lights it was a bit dark.....plus, I knew you didn't want to see my mug in the picture, so here is the end result. Hopefully, you get the gist of the finished product.
As far as supplies are concerned, it doesn't require a whole lot:
- etching armor (Hobby Lobby)
- sponge brushes
- water, sponge and rubber gloves
Here's what I learned:
- The consistency of the product is like a thick paint versus a paste. I was able to apply it easily enough with a sponge brush.
- Since I purchased a standard stencil that you would use for other types of stenciling projects, I did get a bit of seepage and the fine lines such as stems were difficult to achieve.
- If I were to etch a glass or candle holder for example, I would definitely look to see if they have any etching stencils that might work. The etching stencils can be adhered to the surface since they have a self adhesive backing; this would definitely help to prevent any seepage.
All-in-all, I'm okay with the end result....it added the little bit of interest I wanted on the mirror. It's not perfect, but I definitely learned a lot and would try it again..... After all, my will is in order :)
