My first etching project

Some folks from my clay guild got together for a class on etching copper taught by Elaine Kennedy, who did a great job of introducing us to the technique.  During class I just experimented with various resists, but after I got home, I tried to do something for real. This is a copper shawl pin etched with figures modeled after petroglyphs. 


  1. Did you get the acid bath to etch at home? If so what's is your source?Nice job!

  2. Someone in my clay guild bought the etching liquid. She got it at an electronics supply house. I've been told that Radio Shack has it too.
