The small bottle is plenty. I did this a few months ago, and you could do several with one little bottle.

The small size is plenty. I got the big one because I have 5 carboys I'll be doing and wasn't sure if it was enough.

So I did my big carboy last night. Should have referenced your post before hand. The directions said to leave on for 5 minutes (actually left it on about 7) then wash off. This is what I did. I did get a usable etch since it's just for a quick reference but there isn't a lot of contrast. if I do my other I'll leave on for 15 minutes probably.

I can't see the OP's pics but I have been wanting to do this to some mugs. I'll have to give it a shot.

I was wondering what you use to do this, tape or vinyl. I etched my logo on a pint glass the other using tape, but it took a long time to cut out the design. I would like to find something I could use again.

I can't remeber exactly how long I left mine on. It probably was around 15 min. I kept brushing the acid around also.

I've been thinking it would be cool to etch beer or wine bottles...Maybe for gifts of apfelwein...
