Well, a BB is far to thin for actual etching, If you want the frosted look you could try some of that frosted window film stuff that you put on a bathroom window for privacy. Just cut it to the design you want.

wow these all look wonderful..... HBT has added another project for me to do, one question though, did this affect the structural integrity of the bottle? I plan on doing this to some of my 22 oz and don't want them to break when I bottle condition.

I had the same concern when I first looked into doing this. Let me assure you that the actual etch is not deep enough to cause any structural damage. If you were to use a cutting wheel or something like that then it would cut deep enough but this stuff is more like a thin glaze.

When I run my hand over my finished product I can barely feel the frosted areas and I can't perceive any actual "depth" to it at all.

Hope that helps...

Hmm...I know it's not the same but I've got some glass frosting spray paint lying around in several colors. Might give this a try using that instead of going out and buying glass etching acid.
