I had high hopes to make these little "love" votive holders. I assembled my materials.
- 4 Glass Votive Holders
- Glass Etching Cream
- Contact paper to use as a stencil
- My cricut to cut the contact paper
- Some red vinyl that I was going to try a little something different with.
I even burnished down the edges
(Photo by my son, had to use it...)
I then applied the etching cream according to instructions. Which I didn't want to photograph for fear of touching the camera and the etching cream at the same time.
Batch one didn't work out... at all really. I left the cream on the full 5 minutes, thought I had applied it liberally enough, but ended up with spotty results.
Yeah... that is not the look I was going for.
So I reviewed the instructions, and decided that it could have been because they weren't quite clean enough and maybe I didn't apply the etching cream liberally enough or leave it on long enough...
I tried again.
I failed again.
Parts turned out better:
But no single votive was even close to being what I wanted.
I might try again... I might not.
