That looks very cool, but what does it do to the integrity of the glass?

WOW that looks awesome! Almost makes me wish I had the glass carboys to do that with.

I assume this works just as well for a 12oz brown bottle. It might be fun to permanently etch labels on to those bottles.

The etching is only at the surface level(much less than sandblasting would do). I have no doubts that it has not weakened the overall structure of the glass.

Very cool. Does that stuff work on bathroom mirrors?

I could blur out the area where my "what nots" reflect when I step out of the shower.

Would that be because your "Junk is Ugly"?
