This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape brand painter’s tape. All opinions are 100% mine.
I am a Chevron junkie. I cannot get enough of this Charlie Brown pattern. If it ever goes out of style I will be that person stuck in the Chevron Era.
Have you seen Shape Tape™ made by FrogTape®? This stuff is fantastic and super easy to use. It comes in 3 different patterns, and the possibilities are endless. I am not currently in a painting mood, but you can’t stop me from being creative!
Supplies Used to Make Glass Etched Chevron with Shape Tape™
The glass surface needs to be clean and then you start on your design. Starting out I wasn’t exactly sure how I wanted to do this and played with the position of the tape quite a bit before I got it just right.
The Shape Tape™ is very easy to use because the backing actually peels of in two strips so you don’t have top worry about placing a super sticky strip of tape. Simply peel one side before you position the tape and then peel the other side when the tape is placed.
How to Make Glass Etched Chevron with Shape Tape™
I ultimately decided on 2 thin strips of chevron around the glass holder. Since the vase is a curved surface, slowly lay the tape into place. You will need to adjust the tape as you go around.
The Shape Tape™ is great for this kind of project because it is treated with patented PaintBlock® Technology, which is a super absorbent polymer forms a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, which helps prevent paint bleed. So you get nice crisp lines. I covered the rest of the holder with blue FrogTape® painters tape to protect it from the etching creme.
The etching cream is the consistency of a thick pudding. Apply thickly and according to the bottle’s directions and let it sit about 15 minutes. Be careful not to get any on the exposed areas because it will leave a mark even if only on for a minute.
After 15 minutes scrape the etching creme off the glass and for most brands you can put it right back in the original container to be used again. Rinse the glass with water and remove the tape.
It looks pretty all by itself!
I added some Candy Corn to celebrate Fall and a candle.
Then put it in place on top of my entertainment center.
FrogTape® Shape Tape™ really is so easy to use, and this awesome Chevron Candle Holder came together super quick. I think having two sections of peeled backing is absolutely brilliant and makes application quick and easy.
