Chemical Etching For Artists and Hackers


This Saturday (April 16th) I’ll be giving a talk on chemical etching at the 5th Skullspace Hack-a-thon.

Etching is the process of using corrosive chemicals to cut into the unprotected parts of an object’s surface.

Etching has both artistic and industrial uses. I have experience with both types of etching and I’ll be sharing my knowledge of:

  • The History of Etching.
  • Etched Copper and the Printing Press. (Printmaking)
  • Etching Circuit Boards for Electronic Prototyping.

I’ll see you there.

In the meanwhile, check out the etchings of my father, Allan Geske.
