Make A Badge

For his Halfwood Etching Press Line, Bill Ritchie makes etched, solid brass badges by transferring original badge designs from his computer to metal plates. He prints the design on silicone-coated paper with a laser printer, fuses the toner to a brass plate, and etches it in ferric chloride. This ten-minute video shows exactly how he does it in his workshop - from beginning to end.
