I am over the moon excited to share with you the gorgeous Etched Glass Centerpiece that I created using Martha Stewart Glass Painting Products.  After checking out Martha Stewart glass painting program I couldn’t wait to get started and decided upon an Etched Glass Centerpiece that would work perfectly any time of year.  The great thing is that I’m going to show you from to start to finish how simple etching glass truly is.

Etched Centerpiece

There were minimum supplies needed due to the ease of the Martha Stewart Crafts product.

Etching Centerpiece Supplies

The supplies needed were:

  • The glass etching cream with brush and gloves, which all came with the kit
  • An adhesive silkscreen
  • Glass vase

Etching Centerpiece Project Supplies Opened

Step 1: Before beginning to use any of the materials make sure to clean your glass item with soap and water and then use rubbing alcohol where the stencil will be used.  I noticed several imperfections in my glass vase after cleaning it, but was able to find a side that was perfect.

Step 2: Decide upon which size silkscreen to use.  I found one that was the perfect size and it reminded me of an Irish knot, so you’ll be sure to see this centerpiece again for St. Patrick’s Day.

Step 3: Remove the silkscreen from the backing so that it can be applied to the vase.  Save the backing though because the silkscreens are reusable.

Step 4:  Apply the silkscreen evenly across the surface so that there is a smooth fit.  You don’t want the etching cream finding any bubbles.

Step 5: Using gloves apply the glass etching cream with the brush evenly across the silkscreen.  I applied at least two layers of cream to the silkscreen and let the cream set for 30 minutes.

Step 6: Wash the etching cream off of the silkscreen and remove the silkscreen.  Remember to place the silkscreen back onto the backing so that it can be used again for another project.

I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of my vase.  It looked gorgeous with two floating rose candles and is sure to be used as a centerpiece for various events.  The best part is that the vase is still dishwasher safe, even with the etched design!  You know how much I love simple and this definitely could not be a simpler project.
