My creative space...

'playing' chemistry
My creative space

I am 'playing' chemistry at the moment....

... The other day I went to the Jeweller Suppliers and bought a whole bunch of chemicals.
Whith the intention is to treat different metals and get exciting, interesting and beautiful effects.
I have been playing with patination- oh so fun. ( I will share another time)

But today I pulled all the stops!
Today I did some etching.

Now according to most people (the jewellery designers I spoke to) : it's not easy, but the chemicals - oh the chemicals! what dread! ----- I thought to myself; Acids are daily bread for a chemist, it surely cant be too bad..., went to library and got a book out. (its how I deal with something I wanna learn)

So Today - Today was the day:
I encountered no problems at all, it's really simple chemistry...
The pieces came out great- and I am so excited to do more- and once I find some Stop-out-fluid the sky is the limit

So Today:
The scientist in me feels totally professional and I am totally enjoying it.
The artisan in me is pleased with the effects and I am thinking up a thousand and one things I can do...

Good on your for tackling something new! I did a little etching work when I was doing VA electives at college - and it was great fun! :) I think your pieces turned out really well!
