The copper plate was dipped into salts for a about an hour after I finished the first round of scratching. The bite was good enough to get an idea of where I want to work on the plate next. I wanted only a light touch on the faces, more a suggestion than anything, so I stopped out the face area before exposing.
I am playing around with a character that journeys to far flung places, making observations or finding momentos along the way. It is this character that will fill her anthropological notes into the hand made book I made. In this first copper matrix, I am having the character join Philius Fogg in an air balloon. I still need to figure out what her name is to help me get to know her better.
