An exciting alternative to acid etching, electro-etching is non-toxic! Using electric current, this method creates a clean etch in copper plates, resulting in very delicate, bright lines. Aquatint effects are possible without harmful powders or rosins.
Learn the fundamentals of electro-etching, including the set up and proper use the electro-etch tank. Learn how to mix the etch solution, degrease a plate, and perform timed “step tests.” Explore the effects of different plate grounds, then create intaglio plates using etched line and aquatint.
