Glass Etching - Candle Bowl

I made this candle bowl for my grandmother Mamie for Christmas. (Yes, I know there are ribbon spools in the bowl.) Than bowl would not photograph well with the candle in it, so I added the colorful ribbon. This was the first etching I had done since high school, too many years ago to worry about. But it was fun & I will be making several more to Christmas gifts.

The scallop square is cut from the Mini Monograms Cart.
The M is from the Plantin Schoolbook Cart.
I used clear contact paper to cut the design out of & layered it onto the glass.
Armour Etch. I left it on for a good 30-45 min with great results. I knew I had to leave it on longer that recommended, so I really didn't time it. I put it on 7 started working on some other stuff then just checked it a while later. I scraped off as much as I could & put it back into the bottle. Then I rinsed it off thoroughly before removing the contact paper. Wash well & dry.

Thanks for looking. Questions & comments are always welcomed.
