Glass Blocks

The other project I made were etched glass blocks. These were a fast, easy project to complete and my 7 year old daughter was able to help. First you cut out the design/name you want on contact paper. Adhere the contact paper to the glass block in the design that you like. For the etching part, I tried two different techniques. The "Craft" block was done using etching cream. It is easy to work with but I had to apply two applications due to the large area I was trying to etch. It came out pretty even and is there to stay! The "Snowflake" design was put on using a can of spraypaint that gave it the etched look. The final product had a very even look to it but the negative it that it tended to scratch easily. So there you have it... hope you enjoy!
