More Etching...nearly there

I think I know what I want to make now so I have etched a few more items...till I ran out of etchant.....Went into town and bought two more bottles of the magic potion and now I only have one last piece to etch tomorrow before I start putting it together.I'm so loving the look and feel of the etched metal.As you sand it back the stamped image just pops out at you.So now I have another etched rectangle done...the iron work part of the stamp in the rear came up amazingly

a Collections stamp used on this square

woops...scanned this one a bit lop sided sorry

and lastly an etched house shape


Hopefully I'll get the item underway tomorrow after we go for a drive(it's dh's day off...have to play wifey *grin*).Then Wednesday I have the day set aside just for me yeha

hugs

These are so pretty! It is amazing how well the ironwork behind the ladies shows up...beautiful. Are you using a ferric chloride solution to etch?

I just bought some etchant from Radio Shack. I need to look at my "how to" again. What are you using on the edges to avoid sharp metal- are you just filing? Thanks for sharing! Very cool!

Great etchings Annette!! I did a class on etchings with Jen & learnt so much from her, she is an excellent & very patient teacher.
Love how you have used the Angelina & Opals!
hugs Lucy
