Copper Etching

XO stamped with vintage wooden stamps & StazOn Ink.

Vintage Wooden Stamps

The gritty, earthy textures are what draw me back to etching. 


Gritty Details

Radio Shack PCB Etchant Solution & Liver of Sulfur do amazing things to copper.

Warmer Light - Shallow depth of field

Details & Size reference - The pendant is 1.5" X 2.5"

The unique, small, vintage key adds more earthy warmth.

Add the components to a 36" antiqued copper chain & you're done.
The End.

I need to order some bulk solid copper bead chain.
Ebay has some good options for it....
Anyone know where the best supplier is?

carpe diem!

Love etching, must make time to do some more. Love your tag. Can't offer any advice on copper ball chain, maybe try amazon, I've noticed a lot of jewellery suppliers using it now.

Awesome etching! No tip about chain supplier, I've tried a few but not very satisfying...
