Want to give etching a try? Start with copper! Copper and copper etching solution are economical, easy to work with, and relatively safe. To etch metal, you apply resist to its surface - resist is a substance that will prevent the metal from etching wherever it is applied. Once the resist is applied, the copper piece is submerged in the etching solution to etch.
