Introduction to Electro-Etching

     

For all skill levels! Get basic knowledge and experience electro-etching metal using simple equipment that can easily and safely be set up and used in your home studio. The advantages of electro-etching include: no caustic or highly dangerous chemicals are used, no dangerous gasses or fumes are created during the process, and many of the electrolyte solutions do not become exhausted and do not need to be refreshed. The techniques learned may be used to electro-etch copper, brass, bronze, nickel silver, steel, and silver, depending on the electrolyte. We will use 5 volt power supplies as power sources, and sodium chloride (salt) as the electrolyte. A wide variety of resists will be used and discussed during the workshop, including; vinyl, PnP Blue, etc. The $20 supply fee, paid to instructor at the end of the workshop, includes several copper projects.
