ETCHANT



Hi girls,

I can see the "how to" concerning muriatic acid added to hydrogen peroxyd from Barbara Lewis at Jewelry of distinction made a lot of fan. Thank to her for sharing with us this so simply way for etching metal.

Leslie shown us her results, which are great, but she is unsatisfied by the ink she used.

So, Leslie, i tried this afternoon with Stazon ink and stamp pads. Honestly, i love the result, it encourages me to go on with this technique.

And i have here to thank Lilibulle for her help in explanations and her patience, and Renate at Put a little magic in your life who send me the copper sheets. Love you gals.

I've got one word for you. GORGEOUS! Yes, I had to write that in all capital letters to show how much I mean it. I love it! I wish I could find some stamps with this beautiful writing. I'm guessing that's French. Great, wonderful, brilliant job!

both beautiful! the floral design is wonderful, simple. The script in the other is gorgeous, and so perfectly done--like print on a page. Love the rich color of the metal. makes me want to learn to etch! one day...In the meantime I'll just drool over your stuff!

Oh my Gosh Mardi!!!

These are incredible!! What an amazing job!!! You make it look so easy I think I will have to pick up some copper sheeting in the States next month. No problem finding the muriatic acid. it's right on the shelf next to the rat poison in the hardware store!! Mexico still uses a number of chemicals banned in the US. Oh I can't wait to see more of your "experiments" in etching!!!
