When I was about to start etching I decided to do a test piece so I got a design from one of the class folders and used it on a copper piece I kept from last semester. The pattern came out really nice and from the obvious hints from my mom I decided to make it into a brooch. I used testors paint on some parts but I sanded a bit of it away and experimented by using red, purple, and lavender Prisma color pencils on it can it came out really nice. Also, the colors on all me etched pieces won’t come off because I sprayed a cover on it.
