Hey guys, Ive recently started a build (i still need to buy the materials) for the tomahawk from the patriot. If you're familiar with this tomahawk, then you know that it has intricate acid etching on its blade:
Ive been reading up on acid etching, not having much experience in this area. I believe i found a suitable acid, but am not sure what to coat the part I dont want etched with. It seems like there is two main materials used: wax and fingernail polish. Since I need to coat the majority of the head, I thought to melt candle wax over the whole thing and then scratch the part I want off with a needle or something. It also looks like many people use fingernail polish as well though. Does anyone have any experience in this kind of situation?
