More Etching

Like anything worth doing, etching takes several steps. You decide on the patterns, and apply the resist.

You dip in acid and then carefully neutralize the acid and clean it up.

And then it's time to add color to make the patterns pop! The funny thing is they look sort of, well, ugly until you clean some of the LOS off and seal it...

That's tomorrow's job... I want to get at least a couple of these done and really to go for my last show of the year, Thieves Market in Iowa City this weekend. I'll have pictures tomorrow of 1 or 2 finished bracelets!
