More zentangle - and another tree of life
Have not had much time and its colder at the studio these days - just moving items that will freeze into the house and then work inside during the winter. (I hope)
Once the items are etched and I have washed the ferric chloride off and removed them from the tape - I neutralize them and wash again. (wear gloves or you end up with discoloured finger tips )
The PnP Blue is still on the pieces -
I've used my resin to seal that nice bright copper color
but there is also Gilders Paste - its a wax that you can get in various colors. you apply and buff
(I have to check something out about making my own as I have used my own mix that I take beeswax pellets and acetone and mix and create a soft wax and have used on my pieces in the past - now I am wondering if I can use some colors to mix into it like metallics etc.. - another day)
I did mention I would let you know how I deal with imperfect resists - where the PnP did not stick, spots that did not adhere etc..
I use a product called Stop Out - got it at curry's art supplies - they will order it in for you. You can use a brush or even an ink nib to draw or touch up your pieces. Lots of uses. Acetone clean up.
Here are a couple I fixed for future etching- You don't have to be neat - if you go over line you can scratch off.
