Thanks!

The third link worked just fine.  Very nice tutorial.  I need to work harder at masking off areas that don't get a good coating of toner.  The tips on sanding are also appreciated.  I have been using steel wool to prepare the surface and it doesn't always result in good adhesion of the toner.

¡Muchas gracias Fernando! Y no te preocupas de tu Inglés Wink
Ahora estoy pensando de un dibujo como los tuyos para un 'swell pedal' (el de Solderman) y un woolly mammoth. Sólo para probar tu técnica.

Thanks for the tutorial Fernando, I'm downloading it as we speak. I yearn to produce etches like yours, it's one of my goals for next year.  icon_cool


EDIT: OK, just read the whole tutorial, you attention to detail is excellent. Your etches are so good that my mouth is literally watering. My GF thinks I'm odd for that.

Hey guys. Just want an opinion. Is it easy to etch an enclosure after you have drilled holes into it? I can imagine it isn't too different, I just want to know as I don't think ill be able to etch for a while but I want to get the pedal done soone.

I think the sanding is a very important part of the process. Much people doing their first time etching don't pay attention to this part.

Rick, just give it a try. It's so infinite as what you can design. Some persons think this techniques are limited... Maybe the colors are a limitation, but not the designs.. Just look at InsaneKane beautiful reverse-etchings... Because of that I incentivate you all to innovate applying your own ideas in the tutorial Wink

You can do it by protecting the holes (after the hard sanding work) with masking tape. The difference is that you won't immerse the enclosure on the etchant, but you shed the etchant over the designs in drops very carefully, just protect the areas around the designs and all the parts of the enclosure that don't have designs.

So it's not a good idea to immerse it in the etchant but you can still do it? im not familiar with the drip technique seems more awkward.

So do ya let the etchant run over it or like let it puddle on the part you want to etch?

The second.
Just shed the etchant in drops over the designs until you cover them completely (You don't need to cover all the surface, just the designs, the surface must be protected with nail enamel and masking tape), then use a tip to remove the metal rests while the etchant is still working, like stirring it. Once the etchant is agglomerated just use a napskin to take off this rest, clean the enclosure with water and an old toothbrush and see if the etching is deep enough. Here I let you some pictures explaining this:
