What are you most proud of? Well, this is a tough one, but what I think I am the most proud of, are my boys! They both have learned to be crafty from having a crafty mom. They both can use a sewing machine, paint, draw, and even make chain maille. My eldest has a masters degree, and knows 6 different languages and my youngest is working on his bachelors in computer gaming.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Safety is always number 1... when working with acid you really need to make sure you wear protection. Do lots of research and take eclasses to learn from a variety of artists. I love Youtube for all the fun videos of others who share their ways to use different tools and techniques for etching. There is always more than one way to do things...find what works best for you.
