I Forge Iron

copper / Brass Etching Tutorial


Recommended Posts


Thank you for the tutorial!


I'm in the process of doing some right now. I'm working with a diamond shape. The way I registered it was to put an outline on the paper around my image. Then I tape the image to the copper and using my stomp shear, I cut to the outline. I didn't pre heat the copper so indexing was pretty easy. The paper was the exact size of the copper...


The one thing I would add is using a thin cotton sheet over the paper. It will help the iron move around on the paper easier.
