After two weeks of waisting time, money, plates of various metals, and possibly getting intoxicated by new nitric acid baths, I think I am beginning to understand the craquele technique in etching.
Not to master it, mind you.
I believe that is practically impossible, as far as I can understand, but at least a step forward.
The evening course at Il Bisonte is giving its rewards!
Thanks to all who helped.
