I am about to start acid etching some brass plaques for an upcoming project I have, and I was thinking that I could use my GF to create a much better image. The idea I had was to use Krylon Spraypaint to cover the brass, then use the GF to etch away the paint, in order to expose the brass I want etched. I was thinking I would let the material off gas for a few days, and probably give it a soapy wash before I put it in, to avoid any of the spray paint propellant being an issue
Is this possible, or more specifically, not dangerous or stupid, to remove Krylon Spraypaint using the GF? I am excited for the fine amount of detail I can get, but I don’t want to hurt myself or my GF. As I understand it, the brass shouldn’t be an issue, as it shouldn’t really get etched at all by the laser.
