I went digging through files of past Halloween crafts and found a few that I never posted for one reason or another.
Like this one from 2010.
I created this project at the 11th hour and then when I couldn’t get good photos I scrapped it.
It’s a cool project though.
I was experimenting with a couple of different products – Armour Etch and gel candle wax.
First, wash a wine glass (you can get them at the craft store for $1) inside and out. Let dry.
Cut apart the stencils and adhere them to the dry glass. They are self-stick but I also added blue tape around the edges to secure them even more since this is a rounded surface. Also, since the design goes so close to the edge of the stencil I was worried about etching outside the image and the blue tape gave me some wiggle room.
Follow the directions on the Armour Etch and set the etched glasses aside.
Next, I used gel candle wax and added a red wine colorant to it and then heated it up in the microwave in a microwave safe dish.
Then I added a wick to the glass and poured in the gel wax.

Sophisticated and refined…
