copper plate brooch
Press and Peel etched copper plate brooch in progress.. still taped to the styrofoam floatation for the acid bath. The part with the design is now raised and the background lower, eaten away by the acid. Different to the type of etching I learnt when doing print making years ago where you painted bitumen tar onto the metal sheet and then scratched into it to make a design.
Also note the little tiny moss cave I found in a rock :) I wish I could shrink down and curl up in there.
