Giving you a % power will be impossible without knowing what power your tube is. Even then not all tubes have the same power characteristic. All I can say is you will need to experiment .

Look at your result and you can make a decision if you want your engraving deeper or shallower. Deeper means more power for the same speed (or increase both) shallower means more speed or less power.

When you peel it off the staining will come off also and you will be left with a clean crisp result.
