Etched Crystal Teardrop Ornament
Simple and elegant are the two best words to describe this crystal tree ornament. The beautiful, long teardrop comes with the metal hardware and round crystal. Etch this project as I have or with a reindeer, family initials, or one of your favorite holiday images. Etching creme makes this easy and quick to complete. No extra tools are necessary for the etching. Just apply it, wait fifteen minutes and remove it. This will certainly be one of my new favorite mediums!
step 2 - Roll out scrap clay to no less than 1/8” thickness.
step 8 - Cut another identical piece of scrap clay and place it on the non-etched side of the crystal matching it to the etching on the front. Etch this side as you did the other.
step 9 - Reattach the round crystal piece.
step 10 - Cut a red ribbon and tie it in a bow to act as a hanger for the ornament.
Press a glob of clay onto your work surface and press the crystal onto the clay to keep it from wobbling while you work.
While I etched a simple shape on the crystal, many clay stencils could be used to cut your clay. Initialized crystal ornaments would make great Christmas gifts.
