Tried something new: transfering and etching 3 sides at the same time.
Still something to learn. The edges are not as good as I would like, probably needed more effort during the transfer.

Instead of etching everything at the same time I kept turning it in a shallow puddle of acid. The edges suffered with the overexposure too.

Thanks!
Has anyone tried something similar?
Doing every side separately can give better results, but takes too much time. I think iíll work longer on the ironing of the edges next time.

I tried it once, doing all the faces but the bottom one: https://www.diystompboxes.com/smfforum/index.php?topic=85803.msg1124263#msg1124263

I can't really remember if I did all the faces at the same time or one by one, but I do remember it was a hard etching because one side come more shallow than the other. I didn't tried it again, not for the extra work but because I didn't had to. This one was a drawing by a friend that asked me for the pedal, so it was a kind of "signature exclusive" build :icon_mrgreen:.

But I don't think I can do more than one side with as much details as you can. In fact, I don't know if I can do just one side with as much details as you can :icon_mrgreen:
