Image to show proportions of prints.
Some images from my first
I am trying out a possible shape for an artist-book.It is triangular and in 3D-shape.The text is mostly on the inside, and one can see through from the outside.My working title is still “The popes daughters”.(see earlier blog)
Here are the sorry remains of my easter morning experiments with acid.
Ferric chloride is supposed to be a safe mordant for etching.But I had never tested it with aluminum,only zink plates.
Today I wanted to give a patina to some aluminum-box pieces for a project.(Artist-book-project).
I wanted to glue these pieces onto a small suitcase, which is going to be an artist-book.
i put the pieces into the etching-box and all was calm,i thought it would not work.So i went into my other room for some coffee to wait it out.After about 45 seconds I heard some noise from the other room an hurried in.
there my pot was boiling,hissing and fuming!
I found some gloves to get the pieces out of the pot and into the sink for rinsing water to stop the prossess.
Not much left of the lid, and the pieces full of etched holes.
So, here`s a general warning to you fellow printers.Careful with the acids!!
