Photo Etching Old Family Photos

ve been very busy in 4th year and you may notice that I’ve made a few changes to my blog.  I hope it’s for the better and I’ll get back to more regular postings again.

I’ve done quite a bit of work using old family photos. I used photo etching to etch into silver.

This is the finished brooch. The image has come out very clearly by oxidising the surface of the silver.

I’ll show you my laser etching in my next post.
