Ebba's Etched Ring

(8/06)

This poor ring has been a lot of things.

It was a testpiece when John was making Wendy's ring. I tried two different stone settings in it, without success.

I used it to test etch resists and mordants, for John's wedding ring.

Several of the resists didn't resist, and some of the mordants did. So it developed a lot of texture.

I used it to test patination recipes. Some of them didn't, some of them did.

Then Ebba told me to set a copper lump in it, so I did.

Now I think it's finished.
