How do create a mirror image:
I created in word the document with the print in the correct manner , then I did the Ctl A(all document) then Ctl V (copy)
I opened Photoshop (I use Photoshop all the time) and selected New - from clipboard and it brought up the document
In Photoshop - Image - flip horizontal
Once mirrored - copy all and paste back into word and print
I filled my word doc so that I would not waste too much of the PnP Blue
I cut out and placed onto my prepared blank and pressed (using my nifty new toy) and then into the ferric chloride for about 2 hours (relatively new acid)
This time I used sharpies to cover any spots that were missed (very very little was missed) and ran it down the sides as protection - wanted to see the results
good coverage no spots left open where I wanted it protected from acid .
After etching it came out well
Once bent - I sealed with wax.
Prototype - I see a couple of bubbles that must have happened - and should have moved the ferric arround after putting into the bath like I normally do but this was a single prototype just to see the results of works on the etched bracelet. I wanted it smooth on the edges and only to be etched around the letters - could have stayed longer but - its soooooooo hot in the studio today.
