Wash and completely dry
the 3 vases and hanging votives before you begin the project. Set aside
the hanging votives for now.
manufacturer’s directions, create a glass etch design on the 3 vases
using the Tropical Etch stencils and etchall creme. Because the vase is
curved, use the masking tape to create barrier walls around the stencil
when the crème is sitting in the design.
You can glass etch as
much or as little as you want on the vases. For the sample shown, the 2”
shell honu and laua’e fern designs were used. The tallest vase has five
shell honu placed around the vase and three laua’e fern along the bottom
of the vase. The medium vase has three shell honu around the vase and
two laua’e fern along the bottom. The shortest vase just has two laua’e
fern along the bottom. It is easier to work on the placement of the
designs if you group the vases together so you can see how each design
will relate to each other after the etching is done.
After the vases are
etched it is time for the finishing touches. Group the vases together.
Place the teal flat marbles on the bottom of the vases. Break off small
stems of dried greenery and place in the marbles to represent seaweed.
Replace the hanging votives into the vases. Add the crystal flat marbles
and the white votive candles. Set in the center of the table for all to
