I'm back (again) with this story of pattern for my next work on zinc. I need your help to choose among the patterns I already created.
If you could answer the survey available here, you may have the good luck (?) to get the one you prefer.

Thanks in advance :-)

Latest and last try for my project. Next time it will be the real thing, I'm gonna start today.

As a present, a three-dimensional A, adorned with acid etched A of various shapes and times.

The trickiest part was the cut out, especially the triangle in the centre.

Tree and fourth

Fourth try, this time with little trees making a round dance.

Not bad but I prefer the previous ones. What about you ?

Nothing to do with ozone but with my third try on the adornment of an initial O.

A pattern of branches this time, with a few leaves (that's the end of automn after all) and no final cleaning which left all the zinc oxide on the parts eaten by the acid bath, increasing the contrast between the two parts even more than in the two firsts attempts.

In the end, I love it too and I'm not closer to the choice of the pattern to use...

Cadel L

It seems that I cannot do anything but zinc engraving these days. This is then a new cadel initial before I go back to me vegetable experiments.

Second try of adornment with vegetable patterns, this time with a fern.

The engraving left a darker sediment than on the previous try with the ramble pattern, the contrast between the background and the fern is then more important and I like it very much.
I nevertheless cannot say which one I prefer and have consequently to make a third try that has to be incomparably better :-)

My latest work on zinc.
It doesn't look like what I imagined but anyway, it's still nice, doesn't it ?

Monday, December 2, 2013


For a ongoing project, I'm looking for a way to adorn the inside part of an O with vegetable patterns. A bit tired of historical vines, I made this first try using bramble. The piece is 5cm large in diameter.

As you can see, it is made of zinc, engraved with acid even if this time I used a plate of new zinc and not recovered one.
