Default Re: etching, start to finish

Yeah, I wanna see it too when it's finished!
I see you put an outline around the gold inlay. I had to do that on a white platinum piece to get the 22k rose to jump out from the white polished background. I studied etching for a semester in college and trying to do very hard line, precise work, the teacher ended up telling me this just isn't the medium for what your trying to do image wise. To bad they didn't teach engraving there.
Good way to remove a lot of metal though and leave an interesting texture.
