I hardly ever remember to post things I make for Swaps in the main communities but  I am trying to do better.

Here is a etched copper Tesla I made for  the Warehouse 13 round 2 swap.

CRAZY awesome!  Was the etching process at all difficult?  It has so much detail it looks like it would be painstaking.  Mad respect for your crafting prowess, madam.

The etching is painless, I just hang them in the acid for a couple of hours.  Applying the resist is the hard part. I mess up a lot an have to start over.  I am excited, I have been etching for about 4 years, and I can now finally get the result I want when I want.

<--- Researched etching so she could figure out what a "resist" was, and is now even MORE impressed with your mad skills.  That looks like some seriously hard work!  And your results are so completely amazing.  Mad crafter love to you.  <3

I can take credit for the design. It was created by the props group for warehouse 13.

Thanks EyeofMazikeen and lightninglisa

Really good work, I love the level of detail. Have you ever used toner ink as a resist?

I have used intoner as resist on regular copy paper, depending on the pattern it you get varying results and still need a lot of touch up.
