I always buy PNP from Small bear electronics mail order. I have not seen it anywhere else. There have abeen a few threads about using photo printer papaer and a laser printer fro the same effect. Do a search on the forum for this information.

Quote from: ElectroFreak
The etching is possibly the coolest thing I have seen in a looong time.  I recently got back into the DIY effects scene (after a decade) and things are a bit different now.  Can I get this blue paper at any electronics place or is it specialty?  I recently built a Marshall Gov'nor clone and while it sounds great, I'm looking for another distortion to build.  Kind of a 'rip your face off' distortion, and this BSIAB sounds like it may work?  Also, for someone starting out again (supply-wise) should I just get one of those basic etching kits to make my boards?  Wiring that Gov'nor by hand was a pain.  Again, excellent job on those etchings, it looks awesome, and thanks for sharing the idea and photos.


If you want to get PNP in bulk, you can also buy it here.

For a rip your face off distortion, try the blackfire. I love the BSIAB II, but it's a bit smoother while the blackfire is a bit more over the edge.

That looks awesome!
Would ammonium persulphate (less toxic etchant) work as well?

I used ferric chloride for 30 minutes and used a hand drawn design with a sharpie and got this for my prototype:

I am curious about the ammonium persulfate as well, as that's easier to get around here.

Wow, cool boxes! I find it interesting that it seems you can go for either the
"precision" etched look with the q-tips or short baths, or you can go for the longer baths to get that "been-rolling-in-the-tide-for-a-million-years" kind of
worn-in look. I definately have to try both!  Cool
