With Faith’s permission, I want to share her photos of the etched metal. They are very cool!! The etching process is fun, you basically create a mask using a variety of methods, then place the metal in the etching solution. The solution etches the bare metal.
Here is Faith’s fabulous work:
While I love all her work, the font sheet is my favorite… I just have a thing for fonts:
Faith asked me to doodle my Carla quilting lines using the mask pen on her copper sheet, and here it is after Faith etched it:
See? Quilted metal!! Hmmm… now how to use my metal in a project. I wonder how Faith will use hers?
The weekend already?? Where did the week go?
Enjoy your day! Carla
