Default Re: etching, start to finish

Hi Jim,
It is definitely possible, but that would be a lot of scratching.
A salt bath would have some advantages, I have never tried it, but I think any etch may try to undercut.
If you experiment with that, please let us know the result.
The roughness on this etch is due to the fact that it is a casting. I will show you how I punch that down in future pics.
