I'd like to see how that turns out!

I've been told etching solution in a water balloon also works great on tire burning speeding idiots in a quiet neighborhood on said vehicles windshield. Don't ask just from my sons friend. Problem solved.

I used a sheet of light orange colored tinted glass that was heated then sealing wax applied and cooled. A design carved thru the wax into the glass (a must down to the glass with a sharp new scraper) with different width Exacto Tools plus your signature at the bottom an extra personal touch to a room divider with said etched glass solution.
Sand blasting places use a thin surgical sheeting with a sticky back then draw and cut out out what will be fine sand blasted or glass bead blasted. Both simple processes. Fine green diamond grit once used also works great being broken down finer but destroys even carbide blasting nozzles. With thick 3D diamond or sand blasting there is a large heat created that can cause glass expansion and fractures, trust me I made this mistake once.

Here's a pic with brew in it. It's harder to see the markings with dark beer.

Mine was a smaller bottle for around $7.50 I believe. It doesn't take much at all...
