This is turning out to be the project from Hell. Family has been sick with serious colds and then I got some crazy inflammation in my leg that that kept me out of the forge for weeks. The project itself is fun, it just seems that the Norns are having a great time laughing at me. The medallion etchings aren't coming out like I like and I've thrown three or four away already. Picking the best three and going with them.
First picture is the pre-etch mask and the send two pictures are the post-acid etch clean up. Next up is the Liver of Sulphur for a patina.
