Tree and metal always nearby. They always decorated and supplemented each other. Process (lesson) to decorate metal of everyday life. It is very easy and simple. If interests ask. I will be glad to help.

Acid etching is harmful and dangerous. I use solution salt and a copper vitriol.

Very interesting technique. How is the salt and copper vitriol applied? What are the red and the black substances?

Thank you for sharing!

Any information on this process is appreciated. I taught metal work for years but did not run into this process. Looks great. I have only etched aluminum and it definately was with acid.

1. The place where will be drawing to stick with an insulating tape.
2 to paint with atsetonovy paint around.
It quickly dries and strong keeps.
3 to clean an insulating tape and to paint solution white spirit and pitch black oil (tar on building use).
4 on a black place to put with a needle drawing. I inserted the ground nail into a ball pen. The solution sated with salt (water and salt) to add a copper vitriol. On 1 liter 50 grams. To load a detail into solution. In an hour to look. On a place of drawing (flute) there is a red raid. Slowly to wash away a stream of cold water. I used very soft brush. Then still to lower in solution and to control up to the necessary depth of etching. I filled in solution in a kapron (plastic) pipe (economy of solution). When it is ready – to wash out well (plentifully) water and solvent to wash away paint. At first it is necessary to be trained. Good luck.
