Plate of the Dead

etchall_halloween_candy_spiegel4I’m not one for Halloween, but when I saw these new stencils from etchall, I knew I had to have them to make something for my cousin. She loves skulls. Personally, I do not understand her obsession, but I knew they would be the perfect gift.

These Etchnet reusable stencils are quick and easy to use. You simply cut them apart, tape to your project and apply etching cream. Then, rinse and dry and use again and again.

I started with six dinner plates I found at Goodwill. I love how the scratches created a spooky feeling to the dishes and thought they would be perfect for this project.

I taped the stencil to each plate with painters tape. In order to get the stencil tight, I taped one side to the plate. Then I placed tape on the opposite side of the stencil and pulled it taught before sticking it to the plate.

Next, I used the squeegee to push the etching cream through the stencil and then piled it nice and thick to sit for 15 minutes.

Because I planned to use three of the stencils from the package, I was able to do three plates at a time, so the entire process went quickly.

When the first three plates were finished, I removed and washed the stencils and then reapplied them to the remaining three plates. That is the great thing about these new stencils — you can use them over and over, which makes them perfect for party favors, or dishes!

Here is the first one …
