Crayon Etching on Metal Tins

crayon etching 9c
These tins were given to my Father-In-Law by my children.  He works with lots of tiny parts and so this application of crayon etching on metal was a perfect project for my kids and I, to give to him for his Birthday!  The pictures are actually etched right onto the tins and they were drawn directly onto the tins by my children!  Stay tuned this week because  I am finishing up the tutorial on how we made these out of just crayons and salt water! 

This will actually be a 3-part series on etching into metal!  The projects are all finished, I’m just writing up the tutorials!
