Etching is done by removing the upper surface of a silver sheet by using acids. By covering certain parts of the silver sheet by a protective lacquer, you can create drawings in the silver.


We will take a look at the different means of covering the metal. You learn how to apply a drawing with lacquer. Another etching technique will teach you how to get an exact copy from a print onto the metal. This makes it possible to create intricate patterns.
