More on the Etching

I've been working with the silver nickel that I etched earlier this week.

Some of the etched metal was cut into discs. Holes were then punched so that the discs could be used in future projects as links or dangles. The etched pattern wasn't reading especially well so I heated the discs with my torch, instantly turning them black due to the rapid oxidation. I then sanded each disc with a fine sanding block to better reveal the patterning.

I love how the etched pattern resembles morel mushrooms. I also love how nobody else has discs like these.
