Question Acid etching using parafin?

Has anyone used paraffin as a resist for acid etching?

To put on initials, yes. Works the same as nail polish.

I use spray enamel, but I guess paraffin would work. Try it on a test piece or two first.

A good friend told me one time about forging "What is there not to like, you get to break all the rules you were told as a kid, don't play with that it is sharp, don't play with fire, and don't beat on that"
Wade Holloway

See some of my work.
