The sheet was cut out with a plasma cutter, then cleaned-up with a file. I broke the leaves down the center with a brake. I annealed the copper and hammered them, repeating the process twice. The copper forms the structure of the piece.

Can't locate Ferric Chloride

Jewelry | | |

I have been on the hunt for Ferric Chloride to etch some jewelry pieces. Radio Shack used to carry it. Can anyone tell me where to find some?? Or what else works as well? I was told to use Muric acid, but that is a highly toxic chemical and although I have it, I haven't opened it.
