The kit includes a copper blank ready to use for a finished piece of jewelry and a square of copper to etch a texture plate for clay or for other use.
Safe to use - no fumes or hazardous chemicals! Safe to ship and dispose of.
Environmentally friendly - the copper that is etched away in the process deposits itself onto the stainless steel pan, not added as ionic copper to the solution. This is unlike Ferric Chloride or acid-based etchants that become saturated with ionic copper after time rendering the solution hazardous to the environment.
Economical - the copper sulfate electrolyte can be used over and over again. No need to replenish etching solutions. No hazardous disposal fees or purchasing of fresh solution as with Ferric Chloride or other acid-based etching solutions.
Predictable etching - patent pending micro-controller allows produces crisp etchings without user intervention.
Fast and slow settings - two settings to accommodate your project.
Kit comes complete with:
E3 Etching electronic controller with power supply
Stainless steel pan
4 foam spacers to suspend the copper in the pan
Printed toner images - ready to use
Copper square and copper jewelry blank
2 wire electrodes
