Etching - Micah Kirby
Learn a design driven approach to Electro Etching. Gain knowledge using multiple masking techniques, oil-based marker, vinyl, P-n-P, and photosensitive paper as resists on metal. Acquire experience with two, non-caustic and non-gas producing electrolyte solution; salt and cupric nitrate.  Low voltage power supplies will be our power source to initiate etching. Copper and silver will be the main metals we use for this course (others can be used). It is recommended to use the internet to find images that interest you. Find simple designs and be careful of trademarked images. I will have some designs available to use.  Lab fee will include first project and consumables. All other metals in select shapes can be purchased or feel welcome to bring your own metal. (18GA or 20GA for bracelets, 20GA for pendants and 24GA. for earrings)
