Bun Case Etching

This etching was a bit of an accident. I printed liquid resist onto the metal with a paper bun case, and after a couple of hours in Ferric Chloride it was briefly left in Liver of Sulphur (I think). Instead of the darkening effect it was supposed to give, the metal took on these weird petrol colours, which is how I found out it wasn’t copper I was using but in fact gilding metal.
