Coating the votive holders felt a bit like coating them with caramel. It was thick and had a caramel color. (I expected the etching cream to be white and I was worried there might be something wrong!) I wore gloves for this process and used paper plates to hold the votives while they sat. (Don’t use real plates…the cream can etch them!) After 15 minutes (well, actually more, I got distracted…) I washed off the etching cream and removed the tape. I wore gloves for this process as well.
Despite any concerns that Martha Stewart was quietly laughing at me coating taped votives with caramel, my etching turned out perfectly!
