Metal Etching

Rosanne and I are getting ready to etch some metal today. Our guide? This wonderful tutorial posted on the Etsy Metal Blog. Doesn't seem too scary, wish us luck! We are planning to make a little video documenting are adventure. If we don't look to ridiculous, we may share it.

Not convinced you could create your own? Here are a few of my favorite etsy sellers that have etched metal pendants:
Jennifer Stumpf
Round Rabbit Extras

You go girls! I found it to be a bit too cumbersome and hazardous for my tastes...but I am always open to the possibility! I love the look of it and there are some really fine artists doing amazing things with it. I like your suggestions...oooh....Round Rabbit has one that I really really want! (But my current blog post talks all about wants vs. needs...and I guess I don't need it!) And Jennifer Stumpf is a master. Can't wait to see the final result! Enjoy the day! Erin

Good Luck! I think I'm a bit afraid to try that, but the results are great!

Oh good, I thought I was the only scaredy-pants around. I do want to try etching, but just can't seem to muster up the courage to try it!

I can't wait to see how the project unfolds!
