At the beginning of October, I went to Texas to visit some friends and go to Pinners. If you don’t know what Pinners is, you should check it out. It was a weekend filled with craft classes, shopping, and good times with friends.
One of the classes that we took was a “Boho Mirror” class. This class was one of the few that did not have a kit fee to get the supplies to make the project. While we were sitting in the class, I thought it would be a great idea to etch a design on the mirror. So that is exactly what I did.
I didn’t finish the mirror in the class as we ran out of time and E6000 takes a long time to dry. So, when I returned home, I got to work.
I had already glued the first row of beads on the mirror while at Pinners, I think if I do this project again, I will wait until after I etch to glue the beads on. It would have made applying the stencil easier.
I used my Siser Juliet to create and cut my stencil. You can watch the entire project process (in a timelapse) here:
Once the stencil is designed and cut, apply it to the mirror, and cover it in Etchall Etching Creme.
Let the etching cream sit on your project for 15 minutes. When time is up, scrape the excess etching cream back into the bottle to use again.
Wash the remaining etching cream off your project and remove the stencil. It’s that simple. Now you have a beautiful etched mirror to display in your home or give as a gift.
I would love to see what you create! Feel free to share your projects with me. You can post photos or ask questions on my Facebook page:
Join my Facebook group for the Siser Juliet (and Romeo when he is released), if you are interested in knowing more about this machine. I am a beta tester for the Leonardo Design Studio software, and I will be posting more content, projects, inspiration, and answering questions.
