Metal Etched Earth Pendant
by Marisa Arneson.
I recently got into metal etching and have fallen completely in love with it.
I find that I get the best results by using a vinyl resist, but some of my more successful pieces have been also made with rubber stamps.
For this earth piece, I metal etched using a peroxide and muriatic acid mixture, and submerging it for 25 minutes.
After that, I cleaned it off and used Novocan Black for a patina, and then attached a copper chevron bar & the chain.
I love the simplicity of this design.
I love how the patina turned out and most of all, I love that it didn’t take me eight tries to get it right like it normally does!
