She deserves it, with all the hard work she does for the crap pay she gets at the red cross, i hope someone besides me sees the potential in her. I mean jeezus she has interviewed 6 times in the last year and has a CEO of a major PR firm in California and a major PR leader in the biggest firm in seattle as references.....yet no one will give her a shot. Maybe this college will. First time in a long time i have actually prayed lol

Just do really quick strokes with your paint on your first coat to give what I call a stick coat then let it dry and that will be your primer.. Very thin.. Your build up will kill you. As least amount of coats as you can.
I use the Dupla color brand and the Krylon brand with the fusion plastic mix.
About the dust problem.. Most of that is from static Electricity pulling the particles towards it.
I have found that a solution of Dawn Dishwashing liquid.. One teaspoon. and the rest water in a spray bottle will degauss the plexi and will not leave a residue.. if You wipe it till its dry. Works wonders. I was in the cleaning business for 18 years and I know it works.
Can you test and see if there is something that will etch it just in a confined area.
I can see what you mean about the build up. As I touch the test piece, I notice that its still real sticky to the touch. I must of been too hasty, but thats what tests are for.
I've made a note of the brands you use & I will use the same ones if it is available at my local hardware shop. I've also noted to use dish washing liquid with water to get rid of the ESD. I thought just water would be enough, but I guess it isn't.
What type of product do you want me to use to test if it will etch?
