Annnnnnnd my first attempt at an etching since High School. It’s been a while so it’s not of the best quality :-/
Not finished yet, obviously— the local hardware store didn’t have sandpaper fine enough so I have to go hit up one of the chains and hope they’ve got 2000 grain there because I really don’t want to order single sheets of sandpaper off of Amazon.
The stupid thing also refuses to photograph well so… sorry for the photoshop hack job.
(Brass etched in ferric chloride; patina created via coating object in vinegar and placing in oven until… evaporated? idk how to phrase that)
