I'm excited as I am expecting to get my hands on the "green" etching kit that Sherri and her husband Dan developed really soon. But I have been thinking about what images to use. I'm happy to draw some simple patterns directly onto the copper with a Sharpie but what about more complex patterns? What will work well? I dont have the answer yet - I need to experiment - but in my flicking through Flickr (get it :D) I found a link to the entire works of Kunst-Formen der Natur, by Ernst Haeckel, 1898. This book is in the public domain and features incredible illustrations. Even if they turn out not to be ideal for using in copper etching they are sure to inspire!
