Thanks for the tips, Tom.  I'm making "scrabble" type name plaques and my mock ups were too messy with the acid brushes.  Going out later and get some acrylic brushes. Steve

Thanks for the advice - I was unsure as to how to finish blending the new into the existing. As to the dogs, the neighbor says he has a plan. Going to try and get it done this weekend.
