“Would you like to come upstairs, and see my etchings?”

From Jake von Slatt, a modder with a penchant for Steampunk, comes this walk-through on an electrolytic etching process that can be made from a black-and-white digital image. Electroetching (aka Galvanic etching) involves no corrosive etchant, and works like the electroplating process in reverse. The process described utilises xerographic toner (carbon) from a laser-printed negative as the resist.

Note: As well as brass, this process could be used with copper plates, or most other copper alloys.

Hybrid Digital Negative – Analogue Print Processing

Ralph Lambrecht, co-author of the wonderful Way Beyond Monochrome and of DarkroomMagic.com, has published a description of a digital-to-analogue process involving a full-size, inkjet-printed “digital negative”. The key strength of this process is that it allows the production of archival contact prints from digital images at home. The key weakness is that the quality is still limited by the printer that you use.
