Man would I love to see a tutorial on how you did those growlers!! They look awesome!! How did you achieve so much detail. The lettering in the bottom rocker looks nice and sharp.

That Rub n' Buff stuff doesn't look like it drys or hardens, or more of a wax or buffing compound. Does it rub off if you touch it or leave any residue? A lot of reviews state to use a water-based clear coat if you use it on anything you'll be touching.

I'm also interested in how you etched all that detail into your growler, and don't say xacto knife

I would venture a guess that a reasonably coarse (110) Silk Screen would work - burn your image and wash out the emulsion, then tape firmly to the growler and etch ???
a bit of an investment, but you could use it many times...

screen frame at amazon
