Default Re: etching, start to finish

Steve, you can etch the background in the scroll, but its such a small area, I just chisel it out, punch flat, and stipple.
I have been working on the scroll the last couple of days, and after finalizing the drawing I etched the right side panel.
As John B. suggested to me, you need a little "Drama".
This is the artwork.
