Maker Faire Kansas City 2013 Steampunk Style

First up, Airship Noir will once again be at Maker Faire at the Kansas City Union Station!  This year we will be teaching you how to acid etch flattened pennies using the The Edinburgh Etch (© F.K. 1997) Method, which is suitable for copper, brass, and steel.  It consists of a specific solution of ferric chloride with the addition of citric acid as a chelating agent or catalyst.  Also, we'll be showing just how easy it is to electroplate copper onto another metal.  

Several of us had a photo shoot for Ink Magazine for a spread called "Meet the Makers" - that should be out soon.  Photos from the same shoot will also run in The Kansas City Star closer to the Faire.  I'm in those photos too!

Just finished a 60 second radio commercial for Maker Faire this morning.  It'll air Tuesday on Mix 93.3 sometime between 7 and 9 am.  One of my crew-mates just finished his that airs on Monday!

I'll be teaching my Airship crew all about acid etching this Sunday at one of our Build Days.  I love making stuff!

Jenna, is there a local KC source for ferric chloride? Am setting up a larger etching tank and need more juice!
