Salt Water Etching

Presented by Peninsula Art Academy at Online/Virtual Space

Salt Water Etching

Salt water etching is a safe way to create texture in your pieces and can very easily attract enough attention to stand alone in metalsmithing work. This is a simple and fast etching method (also known as electrolytic etching) without pollution or poisonous chemicals. Only water and salt, and energy!
Kristina will take students through the process of creating a pendant from start to finish and will include information on resists for etching and how to apply (multiple types), the etching process itself and connecting to your power source, clean-up, along with information on creating a safe place to etch in your home studio.
Basic metalsmithing skills are required and students should have a basic smithing studio area in which to work with ventilation.


Take the guess work out of supplies for class and purchase Tool and Materials Kits! The Tools and Materials Kit for this class are $125 and are available through the instructor (info below). Kits include: etching and storage container, energy supply, salt, two types of resists, electrical tape, covered instructions, copper cathode, and two types of project material. You do not have to enroll in the class to purchase a kit. Students not wishing to purchase kits from the instructor will need to self-source the tools and materials from the above list to be able to finish the project.
Signing up for class before April 12th will enable students to receive Tool and Material Kits before class starts!
