Finished Beauty

This piece was a happy accident. While preparing my metal for acid etching I had all my favorite designs ready to make pendants.

Used vinyl resist

As I put the Crow outline down inspiration hit and all my favorites melded together in one piece.

Patina with Liver of sulfur

I then finished it up with Patina – or so I thought. Started playing with alcohol inks and here it is. ♡I’m pretty happy with it!

  • Marci, I love projects like this, where you go with the flow and the piece designs itself in a way you hadn’t foreseen! This piece is a beautiful symphony of techniques.

    Absolutely gorgeous!!!!! I have always wanted to learn about etching. Thanks for showing us the vinyl resist as that is the information that I was lacking.

    You are very talented!
