About This Class

Welcome to my class on etching copper jewelry. In this class you will learn how to etch a piece of copper that can then be made into a piece of jewelry like a cuff bracelet. I discuss the materials you will need and how to handle the etching materials safely. I go into how to edit your image or text in photoshop in order to be able to transfer it to the metal for etching. Finally, I go through the complete process of how to transfer the image to metal and then etch the copper piece in acid.
