    Hi to all

    Etching is a piece of art where one makes design by etching or carving or scraping on the surface be it metal or mirror using a tool. Tattoo is also an art of etching - body etching.

    Do post your comments and suggestions. This is my first piece on etching. Hope it turned out well. This is a metal etching. I also doing a mirror etching will post very soon.

    Regards
    Maddie

    Hi Archana,

    Mirror Etching is actually making etches in the reverse side of the mirror. I am currently doing a piece will post as soon as it completes. You just have to trace the design on the reverse side of the mirror and make lines using an art knife.

    Thanks for your comment. Hope I gave you an idea what mirror etching is.

    Regards
    Maddie
