How to Monogram a Hurricane : Eddie Ross, teacher

When our fav KC blogger mentioned that Eddie Ross would be teaching a class here, we knew we had to be a part...once we heard it involved a monogram, we were thrilled! We gathered at the fabulous Creative Candles. Greeted by Eddie & Jaithan, we mixed and mingled, then got to work.

Supplies:
hurricane, vase, whatever you want to monogram
Armour Etch
contact paper - cut to 8.5 x 11
exacto knife
Sharpie
tape
paint brush
printed out monogram - on 8.5 x 11

While nothing can compare with Eddie & Jaithan's step-by-step direction...hand holding...wine pouring we're going to try to give you our interpretation. We're going to do it again, for sure!
Step 1: Tape Contact Paper, grid side down, over your monogram, onto table.
Trace monogram with Sharpie.

Step 2: Peal contact paper off and apply to hurricane.
Make sure it's straight and no air bubbles...easier said than done, but important!

Step 3: Using your exacto, cut your letters out & peal away, leaving letters exposed.
Clean surface area with paper towel, sprayed with Windex.

Step 4: Apply Armour Etch with paint brush - you want it thick, but not dripping.
Let stand for 10 minutes.

Step 5: Rinse off Armour Etch, remove contact paper & tape, clean glass with Windex.
