How to Etch Brass
« on: December 20, 2011, 05:00:20 pm »
Recently over on Google + I asked if you would like to see a video tutorial to see the technique for etching the plates to get a negative background like you see in the photo. (brass background, only the logo or lettering is darkened)  My current video tutorial on youtube shows how to etch a brass plate with the logo or lettering being the brass and the background darkened...(shown in the photos) If so, comment on this post, and I will make a video showing the steps to making a brass plate as shown in the picture.
