Mark Twain Postage Stamp

U.S. Postage Stamp, 4"x4", Copper, 2012
My first attempt at working copper. I've left the copper uncoated, so it will change color as is oxidizes.

Silver Surfer

Silver Surfer, 4" x 5" Stainless Steel, 2012
After a few month delay, I was able to finally etch eight plates this past weekend. Most are for gifts and I won't be able them off until the holidays, but I did knock out a few for myself.

This is one I've been wanting to do since I started playing around with stainless steel. Based on a sketch by Bruce Timm of Marvel Comics' Silver Surfer. I painted the background a flat black to contrast the shine of the steel.
