The entrance door

I did it! The entrance door has 'frosted glass'. Didn't do it the way I had it originally planned, but it worked anyway. I couldn't find the etching spray for glass, although I managed to find the article on it, but when searching for it on Google I discovered a kind of spray paint that produces a similar result. So I went in search for the hardware store that was supposed to sell it and voila: frosted glass paint was on the shelves! I have to be very careful now not to scratch the surface when finishing off the door, but am very happy with the result so far.

And how did I do it, you may ask? Again I have been a bit slack with taking pictures, but the design on the perspex was done with stickers for card making purposes. So it was just a matter of finding the right stickers (and since I make cards too I had plenty to choose from) and stuck them onto the perspex. Afterwards I had to find the right time between the spray paint being touch dry and not too dry, in which case the paint would peel off together with the sticker. Of course I tried it all out on a glass bottle and other plastic containers before I went ahead with the door itself.

See you at the next update!


  1. Hello Marion, I'm glad to have found your blogs thru your comment on Carolyn's. Can you please share the name of the paint you used to get the 'etched glass' effect on your shop door?

  2. Marion - this looks just great!!!

  3. Thanks for the compliments Carolyn, and Norma, the spray paint is White Knight's Glass Frosting. I've bought it at Bunnings. Wish you lived closer and you could borrow mine. I don't know why I bought a whole spray can for such a small job..... LOL On the other hand, I have another job in mind, but the project I want to use it for is still packed away. Bye for now

  4. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog so that I knew you'd answered my question :) I'm going to Bunnings tomorrow to buy a new jigsaw so I'll look for this as well. I'm not 100% sure if I'll use it on the Brocante project or not but it's the kind of thing I'd like to have handy.

  5. Hello Marion,
    your flowers and your miniatures are lovely.
    Hugs and greetings from Bavaria, Germany
