My husband and I have been playing with electrolytic salt water
etching. What fun! We’ve gotten some great results on our practice
pieces (flat brass sheet and empty Altoids tins). Now I’d like to try
to etch something on the outside of a small brass cylinder approx.
40mm tall by 20mm in diameter.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to apply P-n-P blue to
curved surfaces? I don’t want to waste any of the P-n-P with
experimentation if I can avoid it; the stuff is expensive.
Does it have to be applied with direct pressure, or will heat (from
a butane wax polisher) and burnishing by hand between shots of hot
air be enough to transfer the design?
