You would think after the past failures I have had, I might learn not to try pins with no instruction information, but alas I have yet to wise up. This particular pin has been on my craft board for awhile and when I started this blog I knew this was one of the crafts I wanted to try.
The instructions are simple: This is brilliant- rubber bands wrapped around the vases, then spray it with the craft spray that 'etches' the glass & remove bands. On one of my many trips to Michael's in the last few weeks I found the etching spray that the instructions were talking about. I bought a glass and some rubber bands at Dollar General and set it up this morning. I read the instructions on the spray and the basic pointers were to: A. Spray the etching compound in a well ventalated area, B. Spray in continuous motion to prevent blobby spots (my words not theirs), and C. Will not be completely dry for 4-6 hours and may need multiple coats. I wrapped the vase in rubber bands, trying to make a cool asymetrical shapes with the rubber bands. I used a mix of small and large rubber bands and a mix of thin and thick. I took all my supplies outside and that's when the trouble began.
