Etching for Artists and Hackers: Printmaking & Circuit Boards

I recommend clicking on the menu button to view as a full screen presentation.

These slides — from my talk at the 5th Skullspace Hack-a-thon — explore the history of etching, intaglio printmaking, and the etching of circuit-boards. Etching is the process of using corrosive chemicals to cut into the unprotected parts of an object’s surface.

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.
