Tuesday Tutorial: Copper and Brass Etching

etsymetaletching.jpg

For Tutorial Tuesday….Someone over at the Etsy Metal blog put together a really detailed tutorial for metal etching on copper and brass that some of you more adventurous types might like to try. Note of caution though…read all the labels and follow good safety practices….it’s not like coloring with your crayons!

Etsy Metal is a collaboration of metal artists over at Etsy. You can visit the Etsy Metal Shop here and see a list of all the members on the Etsy Metal Blog.

  1. Etching copper allows you to add texture to your designs, whether incorporate the etched copper plate directly into your design, enamel over the copper or brass sheet or run the etched copper through a rolling mill to imprint your design on sterling silver or gold.
