I have now listed a few of the etched copper pendants in my Etsy shop, after tweaking the patina on them just a bit. I decided not to punch holes in them yet, giving the customer the choice of how many and where. Hoping to make up a few more, also want to make up some bronze metal clay pendants and toggles in my kiln to list as well, so I have added a new section to my shop, Handmade Supplies. Hope you check it out!

- So my latest endeavor, copper etching. I drew on the copper rounds with a sharpie marker, then used a mixture of muriatic acid and hydrogen peroxide to etch the copper. The details don't stand out as much as I'd hoped, especially on the mermaid, I think I need thicker lines. Love the horse head though!
