Sometimes, I get to feeling creative. And I want to do stuff. Sometimes, it involves sewing. Sometimes chainmail. Lately, I've an itch to do etching. Glass etching. It is fairly easy to do. Anyone can go to Hobby Lobby and pick up one of a couple of types of glass etching kits. No skill required.

That is all well and good, but the problem is that I learned to do glass etching using Fluoric Acid. And I can't help but want to do it that same way again. Of course, you can't just go out and buy it. It's poisonous. It's noxious. But it won't eat through plastic. Just glass. Anyone know where I can get some? A couple gallons maybe? My high school chemistry teacher had a big plastic jar of it. It isn't like Im asking for Carbon Tetrachloride here. The acid has legitimate hobby uses. I can't really think of a good use for Carbon Tetrachloride outside of making mustard gas. And maybe nylon. It's been too long.

Ninsi goes to 6 Flags tonight. I will probably read. And clean. Always with the cleaning.

and 6 flags again tomorrow :-D


Have you tried one of those Scientific catalogs? Can't remember the name off the top of my head, unfortunately.


Damn, half a liter of hydrafluoric Acid looks like it runs over a hundred bucks.
