While I will be finishing this out in a while the main reason for this post was to demonstrate my saltwater etching system because I told some folk I would so here it is

It's just vinyl like you would make a sticker for a car window with. You should be able to get sheets of stencils made at ups or fedex but that can be a bit pricey but you do get a lot of the stencils that way. If you can go to a local sign makers shop like I did you might be able to get smaller quantities for a little bit cheaper but if you're willing to  invest about $20-$40 you can get a whole sheet of stencils cut. The one thing I will caution you of is that you wan the negative of your logo or just get it without any of the vinyl pulled off.

I finally finished my spear aside from a few finishing touches. Got it set in a hardwood handle with a rope wrap at the top and at the balance point for a grip. post-24499-0-71143100-1359797231_thumb.j I also sandblasted the spear head and got a very realistic stone look and texture so all in all I'm pretty happy with it. post-24499-0-93144700-1359797287_thumb.j I decided to spice it up a bit by putting an Ozark mountain turkey feather in the top wrap purely for aesthetics and I'm pretty happy with it. post-24499-0-85557600-1359797245_thumb.j I do realize now that the spear head it's self is a little small but it still looks good and I was just making it to make it so I wasn't going to make it bigger and redo all of that hand filing. It is what it is.
