Joe Rotella (You’re Here!)
Etched images on the 4 planes that a floating fame provides (front and back of each of 2 pieces of glass) gives fantastic dimension to what would normally be a flat piece of art. Coloring the etched areas with colored pencils and PanPastel Colors adds pop. Best of all, if you have stencils on hand, you have lots of images you can work with. These step-by-step instructions and tutorial video will show you how to turn an ordinary floating frame in to a one-of-a-kind home decor accent.

Absolutly stunning ! Love it !
beautiful!! thanks for sharing!!!
I LOVE the way you have chosen to use this and adding the color to it Joe! This is so beautiful and provides yet another example of how this product can be used. Thank you!
What a fun project! Makes me ready for spring!
Great video – and I love the depth you created by etching on all 4 sides of the glass. Beautiful!
I bought the Etchall cream from you at Stampaway last year — and never thought I could use my collection of Stencil Girl stencils with it! I’m off to get the stencil spray — this is such a great idea! And I have a collection of “special” frames that I’ve purchased over the years that I can use them on.
Thank you!!! That’s really kind of you to say!!
Omg – I love this! What a cool project!
Joe, I always love your projects. This is amazing. I need to find one of these frames

Thanks! So glad you liked it! I always worry if my instructions make sense so your comment really makes me feel good. Thank you!
I really enjoyed watching you create this project. It is very pretty. I’m wondering though about the durability of the color. Will the color stay on even when you wash the glass or will it fade if you apply a glad cleaner? Thanks for showing us this great frame!
Hi Annette! Yes, I do believe the color might fade over time when you wash it (with water or cleaner). I suppose you could keep the etching/color limited to the two interior planes (in this case there are two, since there are two pieces of glass in the frame). If you wanted more planes, add more glass.
I’m also thinking if you wanted to make the project “as is” you could carefully cover the coloring on the exterior planes with a medium, like Mod Podge. Just “paint” the Mod Podge inside the etched areas. That should protect the coloring.
Absolutely love this and love how delicate the flowers and the colours look!
