Make Magic

 some future projects...

I finally got it right! For the last few weeks I have been having the most difficult time etching copper....spending hours getting the metal ready, stamping, designing...then 95% of them would not etch. I was so frustrated! I bought new acid and peroxide...still not working. So I tried again, this time checking Google...(picture me banging my head against the wall). I had the damn ratio's wrong. Instead of 2 parts peroxide and 1 part acid, I was using 2 parts acid and 1 part peroxide. sigh....
So finally I am back in business!

you can find this piece in my Etsy shop.

I have also listed some new etched pieces and some copper blanks for painting and or stamping. You can find them here.


  1. Great pieces Judy! Love them all!

  2. Glad you are 'back in business'. We all have days like that...

  3. I totally understand. I am working on doing the little ocean gardens on canvas..for tote bags. I am using perm. markers..so new medium and surface..is a learning curve for sure..ackkkk!
