Michael or anyone else on the list,
What is the difference? I bought some 42 Baume ferric chloride from an
Engraving supply house (cheap!) and have been wondering what grade this
may be and whether there should be any particular concerns with using
this to etch copper for photogravure. I'm asking about etching concers--I
already am familiar with the health and safety issues. BTW, I will be
using various dilutions to etch--I need to do trade with a friend for a
more saturated solution.
