5 amp rectifier for etching and platingI’m teaching a class on how to etch metal with electricity April 11, from 2pm-4:30 pm.

To help prepare for it, I’ve also put up a page about using Photoshop and PnP paper as well as other resists for use on metal in etching (or anodizing) for use by students.

Join me for some etching fun as we get electrical at my house.

We can use this setup to etch bronze, brass, copper and nickle silver. That includes premade “blanks” or charms that can be purchased, sheet metal, and metal tubes. These can be cut to make beautiful beads.
