Process & Production

Can be applied like paint. I tried to achieve a papyrus-like surface by inserting an absorbent paper. Etching paste can be mixed with etching liquid to the desired viscosity. The liquid etches less strongly than the paste. Whereby the type of application led to changes, different exposure times showed hardly any optical differences. Be sure to wear gloves.
