So I have an uncle who etches artwork onto mirrors. Mostly things like dragons and unicorns. He gave me a large mirror with a roman warrior on it and it was always something I wanted to try myself. It inspired me, although on a smaller scale, to try etching my own mirrors.

Hope you all like them!

A sharp nail.
My uncle never used etching solution, and I figured I'd try it exactly the way he does it.

Thanks nykole!
I've actually never seen a scorpion in real life.  Sad But I guess if I was finding them here and there in my house, I wouldn't like them much.

I love the seahorse as well. They're my favourite sea creature! I can't believe you did those with a nail. You have much patience!

How did you do the frames?

They are soldered. I added little bubbles of solder on the frame for the seahorse one.
