Well a match would get the wax right off... I'm going to buy some tomorrow and do a test bottle with some wax I have for candlemaking

Here is my first attempt at etching my carboy. Disregard the dirty carboy, I need to clean it. Pretty simple to etch.

I finally got around to marking my carboys! I etched 2, 7 Gal carboys and 1, 5 Gal. This was super easy once I got my water graduations marked on the carboy.

I tried this today, it turned out ok, but I should have left the acid on there for longer than 5 minutes. It is really faint and hard to read. I am going to do it again on my other two carboys but leave it on for 15 minutes this time.

I leave mine for 20 min. Make sure you have a thick, uniform covering of the paste.

I made mine a little more simple, but I am happy with the results. the bars just indicate the volume.

Simple photo addition...



I used standard vinyl numbering, but applied the backing vs the number itself. Prep time was about an hour....etch time took about 7 minutes including the cleanup
