Etched Glass Soap Dispenser

One of the blogs I visit posted a project about a year ago.  You can view it here.  I've been meaning to make my version of it and got around to it this afternoon.  Here it is.

It's an oil cruet that I did a DIY etched glass treatment on before filling with my dish soap.  It's a great way to dispense your soap and I like the look of the etching.

Here's what you need:

You need your piece to be etched, some painters tape, stickers and Armour Etch.  Also grab an old paintbrush to apply it with.

Put your stickers on the bottle.  I went from the bottom up so that I knew where it needed to start.

Tape off your area around.  Press firmly so no cream gets under the tape or sticker.

Apply the cream with a paintbrush.  I put it on thick and wait for a few hours.

Rinse off and remove the tape.

Fill and you're done!

If I do it again:

1.  I'd buy vinyl stickers instead of paper.  The paper wasn't as sturdy as the vinyl would have been and I had to be really careful about putting the cream on the actual sticker.  I had to paint around it.
