Glass Etching with Joy

Today Joy is sharing with us another way to use the word art titles Lori has in the shop. I absolutely adore her project. What a fun way to showcase type, which I also love.  Joy says,

“I love working with Lori’s files in a number of ways.  They’re great for paper, fabric, vinyl, paint, just about anything you can think of!  Today I used her Christmas Word Art Vinyl 2 file .  They really are perfect for working with vinyl!  Instead of just applying vinyl to a mirror, which is a cool project on its own, I used the vinyl as a resist and added Armour Etch glass etching cream.  I let it sit for about 20 minutes…or so…actually, I ate dinner and lost track of time but then I got back to it!  I washed the cream off, removed the vinyl and voila, I had this awesome mirror.  I added washi tape around the edges to add a little color.  Don’t hesitate to try a glass etching project.  Just do what I did, buy your mirror at the Dollar Store.  Now with all that money you saved on a mirror, you can shop for more fun files!  See, I’m always thinking!  LOL!  Happy crafting!”

here is another view, no the words are not white, the light just reflects differently, creating a different look. Joy this is adorable. Thanks for sharing. Go check out more detailed instructions on Joy’s blog.

What a great idea Joy!! It is absolutely beautiful. Love that file and it is the perfect one for your project and the washi tape was a great addition. I think I am going to have to get out my etching cream and make me one.

xoxo, Christine

This turned out so cute Joy! You’re so clever about thinking outside the box. Love your idea of saving money to buy more files too. You always make me giggle! 😉
