Overview

This small display brings together a selection of 11 metalwork objects etched with acid and includes weapons, locks and tools. Etching uses corrosive acids to bite designs into hard surfaces. The background can either be eaten away so the design stands out in relief, or the design itself can be bitten into the surface in the manner of intaglio engraving.
