  3. I've been tinkering with the etching too....I have to say, it's my newest favorite medium! Curious what solution you use? I picked up a powder solution at The Urban Beader and it works great...

  4. You can make your own etching solution easily with very inexpensive items and it is what I am using here. Stephanie Lee offers a tutorial on it in her blog. Here is the link, http://stephanielee.typepad.com/stephanie_lee_studios/2008/03/etching-tutoria.html Stephanie is a wealth of information! I have also done it with salt water and electrical current and that also works well. I wrote a tutorial on it and it's here http://www.lampworketc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=120896&highlight=salt+etching
