Safety first. I dedicate this photo to Huntsman.
Yummy yum ferric chloride. this process I'm doing is called spite bite. Instead of completely submerging the plate in ferric chloride, you can 'paint' it on, splash chloride in random spots, etc.
time for a bath.
It was like painting with watercolor. So dreamy.
Now to do some fixer-uppers. This is scrapping and burnishing the plate to remove unwanted values.
It's pretty exciting huh? Well have a good day peeps. Go on being inspired.
