Etched Cheese Dome

Good Day, it's Sheila from Shes A Sassy Lady and boy do I have a cool project for you this month!!! You will love it and you can make it in just a couple of hours!  I purchased my Cheese Dome from Hobby Lobby. I used my 50% off coupon so this little goodie was only $15 when completed!!! What a wonderful serving dish this is at any party or holiday festivity you have, and just think of the Christmas gift possibilities!!!
I used my Preserves card; the grape bunch and the little great leaves are perfect.
I used the hide contour on the grape bunch. I used a grape bunch and 2 leaves, welded together and kept adding until I met my size.
This is what it looked like before I started working on it. Be sure to wash and dry your item before attempting to etch.
I measured to make sure all would fit.

I followed the directions on the bottle. I might add this is the 3rd project I am making from this little bottle, so a little does go a long way.
I gathered all my supplies and notice I use the clear transparent shelf liner from Walmart as it's cheaper than the liner the Provo Craft Vinyl says. I think my roll was only $3.
After cutting I removed the cut art saving the background.
See how neat it looks. Oh, notice the amount of space on the bottom this was done so that I could line that up with the bottom of the glass dome so my grapes would show over the lip of the pedestal base.
I then added the transparent liner on.
And then removed my piece from the backing.
I have to admit it is hard to maneuver a 19" sheet of sticky paper by myself but it just took a little my time than it would if you had a helping hand. Miss you Kim!!! (she helped on the last project!) Oh by the way I went shopping with Kim and she bought this cute set for a gift and was going to etch it and you know me.... I had to do it too!!!  I have some GREAT ENABLING FRIENDS! Love you ladies and you know who you are!!
After it was on the glass I spent a couple of minute just pressing down the edges so they were all sealed and the cream could bleed through or drip down the side.
This is how it looked when I had everything on.
I applied the cream on thick like the directions said.
However, I left on for 10 minutes instead of 5 because I like the effect better.
After the time was up I rinsed it off with warm water and followed up with a good soap and water wash.

Now doesn't this look awesome? And, it was so easy to make. I sure hope you liked today's little project and come back and see me again next month on Tuesday Treats... until then come by and visit me at Shes A Sassy Lady where there is a new design every day by some really talented Sassy Designers!
Thank you for your sweet words of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me to share with you.

It does look awesome Sheila and I love that piece! I need to check out my HL! It's been awhile since I've done any glass etching and I might need to revisit it for some Christmas presents needed for some of the school staff...

Great job on this! Love the grape leaves! Haven't done any glass etching lately so will have to think about that for Christmas time. Thanks for the inspiration!

Very cool! What a great idea! This could make a great hostess gift and could be monogrammed!
