Here's a question from a different angle - has anyone used this process to remove the print (enamel, or whatever they use for "labels" on some bottles) from certain bottles? I'm not sure of the correct terminology. You can't scrape it off. I'll probably try it myself and see how it works but I figured I'd ask first. I've searched for a long time for any information about removing that stuff from bottles but haven't found anything useful, so I'm wondering if this etching will do the removal trick or not.

I would think that you would leave some etched glass you might not want. Try this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/anot...starsan-32159/ read through at least post #10

yup. Double strength the star-san and let it soak an hour -

the only problem I've run into is Stone Brewing's paint - it takes a little longer, maybe a little scrubbing - but every one else's just dissolves after a soak.

On topic - I still need to do this... too much to do

off topic - I just leave the stone bottles in the normal strength star-san bucket for a week, labels wipe right off.

These look great! Excellent idea. Guess I have another DIY as my sharpie marks and tape just aren't cool enough.

If you carved a design through wax on the glass (all the way through the wax with a sharp new scraper) with different width Exacto tools, and added your signature at the bottom, it would add an extra personal touch to a glass room divider with said etched glass solution.

As anyone confirmed the wax masking worked? In theory it should work perfectly as a ground. I'm a printmaker and took some intaglio classes in college (etching metal plates and then printing them) so I'll have to create some bottle art if the wax works well.

My only concern would be getting the wax off easily. I guess if you put them in the freezer, the wax should fall right off.
