etched copper cuff bracelet

My very talented daughter drew this beautiful Chinese Dragon with a Sharpie marker directly onto a brass bracelet bland for me.

I then etched it with Ferric Chloride, oxidized it, waxed it with Renaissance Wax and buffed it. I love the way it turned out. The only problem is, I can’t sell it now.

I simply cannot part with it. I can barely remove it from Sam’s wrist either (my daughter). I’ll simply have to impose on her to draw more images on metal for me 🙂
