Now wear rubber glove and in In a well-ventilated area with a fan or open air vented room or out side.Always wear goggles, gloves, and do not inhale the fumes. Do not use any metal containers, measuring cups .Put the metal in the solution and wait 30sec to a min your see it start to boil and smoke at this time work fast and remove it with Dermal Anchor Piercing Hemostat Forcep TOOL .or needle nose and into the water for 5min then put on paper towel to dry it be dark gray first but it turn into rust when drying . now clean up can and wash hand good .Please read This etching solution, while made with common chemicals, should command respect. It is dangerous to yourself and surroundings, treat it with respect.

    For a less dangerous form of corrugation, I submit my pictures of standard painted cardstock. Corrugated with a crimper, spray primer, painted with a rust base and drybrushed with a steel paint. Highlighted with silver.
