This is an etching I made of my favorite Japanese rock band, Dir En Grey.

I made this in my art class this year. It took me a whole 8 weeks to make...
I thought it was copper, because it tarnished a bit, but it was "new gold" which looks just like copper when they are both new and shiney, and apparently new gold doesn't etch very easily...
I etched it with an etching solution using a lot of paint pen to block out the solution when making layers.
The frame was made with stamped nickle siver which was rivoted together.

It was based off of this image.

Dir En Grey is amazing and that is so amazing what you did.
I'm jealous.
