Texture plates

I’ve been wanting to etching steel plates so I can make my own patterns on metal. The technique I’m using here is one that I learned from a Leslie Villareal YouTube video.

I like the idea of having end-to-end control of the creative outcome on these plates, and being able to create patterns that aren’t generally available. And it’s a bonus that I can prepare the vinyl resist during the winter months when it’s too cold to be in my garage workshop.
