Etching Process

Etching metal plates is a bit of a tricky one as if at any stage of the process including everything from placing etching ground handling of plate, quality of drawing line correct judgement of etching time. If anything at all is not relatively accurate the results will show on the printing stage no doubt about it. If you are a perfectionist regarding your results and you are fairly new to etching it would probably be best if you can run a test plate first, especially for times line etching and for aquatint shading.
