Recommended by Art Jewelry Magazine!

Etching metal (copper, brass, nickel) is surprisingly easy and, other than the etchant, you can do it using only house-hold items! No special equipment is required. Our 20-page Metal Etching How-To and Idea Book covers how to prepare, etch and finish metals. It assumes that you have access to Ferric Chloride (available at most computer stores - resources listed in booklet).
