Etching

I have been spending a lot of time in the garage.
I have written a series of blog posts for John Bead this week that required me to use a chemical called Etchant.  This chemical scares me a little....but the results are so great I can't resist rubber stamping on metal and then etching!

I love metal etching! I'm hoping to do more in my back yard before the weather gets too cold.
I noticed that you are using StazOn on your clear stamps. Be sure to clean them really well-- The solvent in the StazOn will begin to pitt them.doesn't hurt red rubber though....

I love working with copper and other metals, but haven't tried etching. Thanks for sharing this information ~ your pieces turned out great!
