I am doing something tonight that I don't do very often....no! Not housework...but a second posting. The lovely Linda has suggested we try something a little different and out of the box but fun nonetheless this week. Glass etching. On reading the information on Friday night I set about trying to locate some etching cream. You would not believe the number of sniggers I got and then having to repeat myself emphasising the ETCHing!! Every place I tried within a 20 mile radius told me that you cannot get it any more....(where have I heard that before) although I found I could buy it online. However, as we passed the Model Shop I asked Hubby to stop...politely....and the chappie in there told me for the umpteenth time that they could not sell it due to EU rules...something about toxic, fire risk, irritant ......(my eyes glazed over at this point....if you are going to eat it, rub it in your eyes whilst smoking that is your lookout), but he did have a spray version. Out came my purse and I snatched the can up before he asked if I would be having adult supervision!!
So here is the result of my playing with the spray can last night.......
I LOVE it! So much so I have ordered some cream now to finish the other four glasses I bought. I would say that on a die cut this large it might be easier to use straight sided glasses but what is a little tuck and crease here and there? I am going to get some glittery pebbles to go in the bottom of the glasses and a tea light in each for Christmas. I will also make the other four up for gifts, also with glittery pebbles and tealights.

Thanks Linda for this. Thank goodness for the Model Shop in Abergavenny or else I would have missed out! Woo Hoo! I promise I won't rub the cream/paste in my eyes too!
I will be back tomorrow, as it is a VERY important day!!
