Metal Etching

Metal Etching was something that I tried for the first time on my work placement and I really enjoyed it so I went and done a workshop to learn how to do it to a professional standard. What I learnt was that I was doing a few things a bit wrong and I learnt how to do some really interesting resist techniques that created a great effect. furthermore I found out there was some great tools that you can use to make some really interesting marks on the design. This technique is really good for more abstract imagery therefore it work well with my roses however it doesnt really work for the style of rifle paper that I’m designing for however I would like to maybe use this technique in the third year.
