Photo-etched copper of birds.
In college, one of my metals-mithing assignments was to utilize photo-etching. It’s a process that I continue to love and teach and to continue exploring. I marvel at the serendipity of how metal etches, and the textures that is produced. One feature of etching is the ability to roller-print from the original etch, creating a book end effect. No two pieces ever look the same.
In an article from Ganoksin.com, I outline the entire process so anyone can discover etching on their own.
