I took a photo of an ornament of a building and printed it out. Then I transfered it on a brass tin by ironing it. It was then put into an acid. The etching time of 30min was a bit too long, the ornament was etched through. Anyway I like this first attempt.

thanks for the comments and the advice, Diane. I used a HP 4000 laser printer. Let's see if it works with a cell phone charger instead of a car battery.

nice....that etching process looks really neat!

what kind of printer did you use?

That looks awesome!  You can also try etching with a car battery charger and salt water - a little safer than acid.

Thanks Rooster! I begin to like it too. The imperfectness adds some charme..
