I been doing some brass etching lately, and of course, one of my favorite subjects is my darling wife Anne.
I use a method called the Edinburgh Etch.
And the a material called Press and Peel which I bought from a UK based bay site.
Then I multiply the image prior to some more editing.
I work the image some more, removing spots and stuff.
Then I flip the image .
Then I reverse the image, making the white black and the black lines white.
Then I print it on the Press and peel sheet with a laser printer.
After the etching, I fill the etch with black paint and sand it down and then this image presents itself, in a brass piece about 75mm x 75mm in size.
This is the brass plate lying on a piece of green paper.
Cute or what?
Here is the sequence of a dog.
Mounted in a picture frame. Aluminium frame, copper background and brass picture.
He was just a cute dog that came into the shop with a customer.
I simply love Spaniels.
