The basic process of the electro-etching technique is pretty simple.
This custom modified adjustable voltage AC adaptor allows you to utilize a wall outlet for electro-etching in the comfort of your home/studio/or wherever you might be. Yes, it is conveniently portable, too. Using this adaptor alleviates the consumption of batteries during the etching process - saving money and the environment. It also gives you a consistent etching result. The ability to switch the level of voltage gives you more control within your etching, based on the detail of your design,
If you want to etch deeper and your design doesn't have fine details, use the 1.5v setting.
If your design has finer line details use 9v setting, but it will take a little longer as the higher the voltage the slower the electro-etching happens.
Even with a 9v setting, the electro-etching process is still faster than a floating ferric chloride process.
***This also can be used to electro-etch Sterling and fine silver - although the mordant (etchant) and cathode are different than what's used to electro-etch copper.***
Silver electro-etches faster than copper.
As always please convo me with any questions or concerns.
