another possibility might be that the rougher sides caused more air
pockets/bubbles in the etching medium so didn't etch as completely. when i
etch i always 'work' the acid to alleviate this problem.??  m

Re: Technical questions on etching and annealing
All:

Thanks for the comments.  Just for the record --- yeah, I'm very careful
with this stuff.  I actually have (back in university days) used HF acid to
do glass etching (non-artistic), was quite rightly paranoid/careful with the
stuff.  It's nasty.

I'm pretty sure that the effects I'm seeing are not related to either the
glass being dirty at start, or to pieces touching each other or the sides of
the container.  From the responses I'm getting here and other places, it
seems like my thoughts about different annealing states affecting the
etching properties are at least plausible...

Thanks for the responses --- and other people's thoughts and observations
are still quite welcome!  I'm still watching!
