No3 (c)

A finished single flake - No3. If you look closely you'll see it has
a letter too (c), though somehow the letters became backwards in the
etching process, I've no idea how it happened. Oh well it's a bit
late now. 24 to go - they are all individual drawings by David
Galletly
and no two flakes have the same design.

Ahh, the finished product. It looks fantastic! It's been fun following the progress of this project.

I figured out how the 'C' came out wrong. It's not backwards, it is upside down. I just got a set of 1/16th letter/number stamps, and they don't have an orientation mark on them. I think I will line them up and paint one side as an orientation mark. My bigger stamps have a dimple or a groove on one side as the marker for the bottom side of the letter.

Ah, that theory works with the 'c' but the 'R's' are most definitely backwards! I think for the best results though you have to place the toner side of the acetate against the silver when exposing it to the UV light to develop the photo sensitive polymer so it was at that point the print was placed backwards.

My 1/16th stampers have the letter that they are imprinted in them on the bottom side so I use that as my guide.

In my search for stamps, I did see sets of reverse stamps for use in molds, where the cast part would be correct.
