Etching workshop

Etching workshop where we had to prepare a plate, we used a vice to make an angled edge and then we had to strip back all the oils and and the added a thick wax so we were able to draw a design into it and then once we drew onto it we put it in acid to that could eat into the metal so it would make a grove deep enough to hold ill in to make a print.
