Almost done with this and ready to print. My fingers are red from having to scratch at the surface so much :p
I prefer working on plexi-glass for etchings because I find it easier to see what the end picture will look like. Haven't used any metal plates since high school, so should probably see if I can get some to try again.
Even with gloves on I get the ink everywhere, and since its oil and really doesn't come off of clothes. its a good thing I only wear stained clothes already to college :p Its very tempting to just leave this once its finished and frame it, I really like the look, reminds me a lot of using scratchboard.
