I love the "hands on" etching process that I use to create these beautiful Holiday Ornaments.
My friend Sephi, of ARTZOOO cuts out my Red Brass, Copper and Silver Nickel shapes. After I clean and file, I begin by drawing my designs directly onto the metal with a paint pen. The ink from the pen prevents that area on the ornament from being etched.
Next, I prepare the etching solution using kosher salt.
Then, I hook up the converter that will generate low voltage current.
After plugging in the convertor, the salt water etching process begins. The electric current slowly erodes the copper from the metal, making the drawing take shape.

Summer has officially arrived and my time in the studio has come to a screeching halt. Because of this, I was able to take a road trip to Niagara Falls Canada. The falls are just incredibly amazing, I just could not take my eyes off them. They where so dazzling, inspiring, beautiful......and wet. There are just not enough adjectives to describe these wondrous icons.
