Hi Everyone, I am just learning Niello and so far I find it to be a
punishment from my teacher.
I had a wonderfully etched piece of copper that I glopped huge
amounts of niello on, very poorly I might add.
Now, as I remove the niello, with a palm sander and 220 grit, my
image is no where to be found, my metal is MUCH thinner, and my
niello is still not budging… help!
What is the best way to approach the process? Adding to the metal as
well as removing the excess?
