My mom and I are still crafting, we aren't as busy as last winter, but we still get together on a semi regular basis to work on our next craft. One of the crafts that we just finished are our new etched glass bowls. We saw this idea is the new Martha Stewart Encyclopedia of Crafts book (which is a great book, if you love crafting). First, we purchased etching cream at our local craft store along with contact paper. Then we each purchased six plain glass bowls from Ikea. Lastly, we each thought of an idea and started making stencils from the contact paper. Once the stencils were laid on the bowls, we applied the etching cream (kind of like a think paint) and let sit for five minutes. Whalla! Etched glass bowls!
I decided to etch robots on my bowls because only days before we started this craft I found out I was having a baby boy. What baby boy doesn't want a set of robot bowls?
