  1. Pardon my ignorance but what is the point of rocking that blade across the plate?  Is it to create the texture that you later scrape off when making the design?

  2. @Ed Tillman For some reason I cannot reply to your comment. But yes the plexiglass does reduce the plate strike a little bit, but it's still visible. Thanks for watching!

  3. Very cool. I think I will like this series.
    Does the plexiglass plate distort the "plate strike" indention from the copper plate?
