It seems like you just mix salt/vinegar, dip q-tip, attach negative end of charger to wet side of q tip you're using, attach positive side to wet q tip you're not using, go over what needs etching until q tip is black, etc...
can you go too deep with the etching?
1/2 cup vinegar, and a teaspoon of salt that's it.
Positive side needs to be connected to the Lower and the negative side to the Q-Tip
You can go too deep but it's hard, you lose detail if you go too deep. I suggest practicing on some scrap.
