Want to give glass a frosted, pitted look
December 19, 2016
Q. Hi, I want to accelerate the growth of calcium carbonate on a surface (I think)! I'm looking for an aged limescale buildup on a pitted glass decorative surface. Currently pitting the surface with sodium hydroxide and attempting to grow aragonite into the crevices in the glass. While I can produce the calcium carbonate it's just not on the actual glass item. I'm a housewife, not a school kid or chemist. Just trying to make a glass objects look sea glass frosted & pitted. Where am I going wrong?
