was thinking about you guys.
wanted to make a "dog tag" but wanted it to be "pretty" (not just steel
letter stamps but allowing me to select a aesthetically pleasing font).
remembered i'd seen something on the internet a while ago about this and
found a website.... (can't remember, maybe i even heard about it here?)
slightly modified his technique and made this (the "sandy peak" tag, not the
it didn't turn out "perfect", i think i gave it a little deeper etch than
the toner could resist.
seems to me this technique could have other fun/interesting applications.
(i had no idea xerox toner could resist acid well enough to do a
"photoresist" etching. cool.
(but i bet many of you guys already knew this, was new to me.)
(it's a lot more work than just using steel letter stamps... but if you
want it to be "pretty", this was cool.)
