F is for Faux Etched Copper

F is for Faux Etched Copper
Place two or three colors of alcohol ink on a felt pad with a couple of drops of Blending Solution and cover the surface of a thin copper sheet.

Emboss the sheet in an embossing folder and sand off the color in the raised areas.

Flatten the sheet by running in through an embossing machine UNDER an embossing folder. You can stop at this stage, it looks great.

Run the copper sheet through a different embossing folder and ink the raised areas with a permanent black ink and let dry.

If desired, flatten the sheet by running through an embossing machine under the embossing folder.
