Rinse the steel with water. The water should sheet off the steel surface. Method 2 of Choose the image you want to etch into the steel. You can either draw a freehand image or replicate an existing image onto the steel surface.
Depending on which transfer method you use, you can have a fairly simple design or a complex one. If you plan to replicate an existing design, choose something in high-contrast black and white. If you plan to make and sell prints of your etching, choose an image in the public domain or get the permission of the copyright holder, if there is one.
Transfer your design onto the steel surface. You can transfer the design in 1 of several ways, as described below. Be aware that however you transfer your design, it will print the reverse of the way you etch it into the steel. If you plan to use the etched steel plate solely as a decoration, not to print with, this won't matter to you. The oldest method for transferring designs is to coat the steel surface with a liquid varnish or wax-like substance like beeswax , or even enamel paint or nail polish.
This coating is called a ground. You then scratch your design into the ground using needles or wider-bladed cutting tools. This is similar to woodcutting.
The ground will serve as a resist to keep the etching acid off the steel it covers. You may need to experiment with several brands and colors of permanent marker to determine which make the best resists.
A third method is to create an iron-on stencil by either photocopying an image onto transfer paper or printing it onto glossy photo paper with a laser printer. Place the paper onto the steel surface, image-side down, and using a clothes iron set to "high," iron with smooth, circular strokes for 2 to 5 minutes.
Press gently if using transfer paper; press hard if using photo paper. You can then remove the paper. Transfer paper will peel away on its own, but photo paper requires soaking in a tray of hot water to soften it for removal.
The transferred ink becomes the resist for the etching acid. Cover the steel's edges. You can tape over the edges or paint them. Either method keeps the acid from etching the edges. Choose the acid you want to etch the steel with. Certain non-acids that form acid in water, such as ferric chloride FeCl3 or copper sulfate CuSO4 , can also be used as etching chemicals.
Ferric chloride is normally mixed with water in equal parts to form hydrochloric acid in solution. It's more commonly used to etch copper, but it also works well to etch stainless steel.

As a result, quite a few people got cancer and died. Nyanza was in operation until The contaminated land would remain untouched for another seven years until the EPA gave it Superfund status. The site was named as one of the ten most toxic sites in the country.
The soil and water in and around the Nyanza site were a horrid concoction of hazardous waste. This kind of hazard is something that should be disclosed to potential buyers. In some states, it is required to disclose if the home is located in an earthquake zone, a flood plain , or if the surrounding area is susceptible to wildfires.
California, for example, is one such state. Consult with your Realtor to find out if your area features any of these conditions and if disclosure is required.
One of the most contentious areas of disclosure in real estate is the actual size of a home. The square footage of a home is typically published in the multiple listing service for those who are selling a home.
Unfortunately, the square footage is often wrong. This is an area where real estate agents often rely on the seller having accurate information. Quite often sellers are lax on making sure the size is correct. The square footage of a home is not something that should be taken lightly. Buyers often place a lot of stock in the square footage as it pertains to home value. Homeowners and real estate agents should take the time necessary to validate the size of a home to avoid getting sued.
In some states, including Massachusetts you are not allowed to market a home for having more bedrooms that the septic system capacity. Marketing properties for having more bedrooms than the septic system capacity is quite common with naive real estate agents who do not know any better.
Anytime you make repairs to a home it is wise to disclose them. If the issue comes back, it will be impossible for the buyer to say they did not know about it. Sellers should disclose anything that required a permit in their home. These are usually significant items that should be disclosed. Examples include the heating system, air conditioning, the roof, or anything related to the plumbing or electrical systems.
When selling a property, it is important to disclose any kind of legal issue that could cloud the title. For example, if the home is a short sale and needs third party approval this is something that must be disclosed. Another example would be an estate sale. If the home is subject to approval by the estate or probate buyers should be made aware of this fact. Another example would be there was a cloud on the title or a mechanics lien on the property.
A cloud on the title will most likely need to be cleared before selling, so make sure you have it taken care of as soon as possible. By not taking care of such issues it is very possible a closing could be delayed or not happen at all.
Depending one where you live there is probably some gray area when it comes to what constitutes a lousy neighbor. The rare s and s blues records on labels like Paramount, Vocalion, Gennett and Okeh in original 'like new' condition are very much sought after and sell quickly at high prices. Beginning in the late s, 78 RPM Records were usually mass-produced, thus making them quite common.
Still, many command good prices on eBay and other sites, while others fail to sell or sell at far below original retail. We recommend eBay. One such site is 2ndMarkets. A 2nd Markets Corp.
