It does work, but be sure to get the front and back lined up...

I have made these using 2 sided etching:

The 2 were slightly off on the skull, hence the odd edges that wouldn't clean up completely...

Hey, I love that Skull.  You say it was misalighen (I read that after I saw the picture) but I thought WOW That just so cool, love the chaotic outline, though not too sure it needed the rivets.


To be truthful I love all of them.  The detail on the gold hanger looks brilliant.  I guess you let it etch a bit them painted a stop over it.  Looking at the Empire State Building, nice straight lines.  Does this technique undercut the area masked out (i.e. are the etched areas straight into the metal or do they spread out as it get's etched more going slightly under the masked area)?


What power source did you use?  Car Battery?  Could a battery charger / trickle charger work?  For some strange reason I have loads of Nokia phone chargers but no Nokia phones, do you think it would work on 3.7 volts so I could at least put these to some use Smiley ?

You only need a single D cel battery. Really. Everything else works, but you don't need to get into the heavy duty gear unless you are
doing really large areas.
