Etching and Tone Creation Using Low-Voltage Anodic Electrolysis

Etching of and tone creation on metals can be carried out by an ecologically sound method that avoids the use of acids and rosin. The method uses direct-current anodic etching, at very low voltages, in a bath of an aqueous electrolyte whose cation corresponds to the metal to be etched.
