Glass Etching Test
First test of using the glass etching cream! I used duct tape to mask off a rectangle on the bottle. The letters were vinyl stickers bought in the drafting supplies dept at hobby lobby. Then you just apply the cream to the glass, wait 5 minutes, and rinse off. Easy stuff. Pretty happy with it.
Next I need to go to Goodwill and collect some old mirrors. The idea is to make an etched homeless sign on a mirror or old window glass and photograph a homeless individual holding it. I think it will serve as such a strong symbol to the invisibility that these people so often feel.
Feeling good about this project – as I don’t usually do creative work that has a message of protest or humanitarian meaning behind it. This is a very new and different thing for me… and certainly a little scary. But I’m excited to be doing it.
