This dog is based on a dream I had.
The background was down by rolling the waxed up plate through the press with sand paper, and then dipped in the acid for about twenty minutes.
I re-waxed the plate then etched the dog. I wasn't happy with the image so I then used aqua-tint to make the image darker.
I was happy with the over all effect, I like how the sand paper texture gives off a dream like, hazy effect.
