Continuing adventures – second time etching this batch. Basically I think the rubber stamp lines are too fine for a strong deep etching. I left these in at least 4 hours in a fresh batch for ferric chloride. One of the stars has a hole for the jump ring that was too close to the edge… remind me to drill the holes after etching! It destroyed the fine piece that made the hole edge. I’ll just saw/round off all the corners.

today I stopped in to pick up the handouts for AARP tax prep at the Olympia Senior Center and also visited the Senior Boutique. SCORE! I was bemoaning the fact that I had given away many of my rubber stamps awhile ago. Remember Murphy’s Law about discarding stuff and needing it soon after… Look what I found!   Also – Ask the Universe and be thankful….

Most were .25, .50 or $1.00… The designs have much wider lines so they will translate better as far as applying the StazOn permanent ink…
Can’t wait to try these out on more of my copper shapes and I will remember not to drill the holes until after etching.

Off to teach the last Mixed Media class…
