Water etching art clay silver

When the latex mask is thoroughly dry you can begin the water etching process. Dip the piece into a small bowl of cold water and allow the exposed surface to get wet. Gently brush the clay away into the water. Keep re-wetting the surface.

I usually stop and dry the piece to check the depth of the etch from time to time and then continue if necessary.
