Marble etching on purpose just to get it over with??
Someone asked a question on a recent marble thread that intrigued me. She querried that if marble will etch when exposed to an acidic substance, why not take an acidic substance to it at the beginning to get a uniformed etch?
Please don't laugh at me if I've just said something reeeeally stupid (I've got two slabs of gorgeous 4cm Carrara on hold and wanna know!), but........
Why couldn't you do this?
