“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.
