Hello Beautiful Etched Mirror

etched mirror
Who doesn't love a beautiful etched mirror? I bought this mirror for my guest bath some time ago and I have been wanting to dress it up a bit. Etching the mirror adds a fun layer of texture without adding anything I have to dust- which is a big bonus in my book! I hate to dust!

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the stencil for this project. You can use any stencil you have to etch with or cut your own using punches or an electronic die cut machine. So many possibilities.

I used etchall® etching creme for this project. Y'all this stuff is so easy to use. For real. Just spread it on, let it sit, take it off, and rinse. That's it. Seriously. You should try it if you haven't.

OK. So I had some vinyl left over from another project that wanted to use up. It was the perfect size to cut this stencil with. Wonderful, right?  NO. Like a dork I forgot that this was permanent adhesive vinyl. Sure, it cut and etched just fine - but getting the vinyl back off the mirror was an unmitigated PITA. Seriously. This took forever.

Anyway,,, after putting my stencil in place I put on a thick layer of etchall® etching creme and allowed it to sit for 15 minutes. Return the excess creme back to the jar and then gently rinse the remaining creme away with water.

I am really happy with how it turned out! Who wouldn't love to see this when looking in the mirror?  Also notice how the mirror reflects itself - you can see the double reflection and it is pretty cool.
