This is my first steel plate, etched electrically using the wonderful book by Alfonso Crujera. Yay it really works (!!) and indeed, its less toxic and eventually cheaper.

I have been experimenting with electro etching. I found several websites including yours plus your book very helpful. I was trained in traditional printmaking methods and materials but have been experimenting with less toxic more environmentally responsible materials and methods for over 15 years.
I love electro etching. It feels very much like traditional etching. I love the crisp accurate lines ( no underbite ) and appreciate the consistent bite times. The fact that there is no residue and the copper sulfate solution doesn't degrade is pretty impressive. I think this technique is the way of the future. I am working out of the Martha Street Printmaking Studio in Winnipeg Manitoba. I am demonstrating the electro etching method trying to get more printmakers to adopt it.

This is an amazing book, very well explained and clear. There is the best book about electro-etching and with that book we can make electro-etching very well.

I just received your book - what a great resource! Thank you. Some if the information is much easier to take when I'm not reading it on a computer screen (…) I am in the midst of writing brief document meant to lay out e-ething guidelines for metalsmiths. While this process is gaining popularity, I have noticed that individuals are almost exclusively using sodium chloride - something I would like to address and change by writing to the metalsmithing community directly. In the introduction I point people in the direction to your site and the link to you book, as you have more completely covered most of the subjects I want to cover. For general set-up, I would like to cite your work whenever necessary, such as describing how the electric field changes when using a cathode grid.

Yes we got your Electro book...and it is a wonderful achievement on your part and a great addition to the safer choices printmakers now have.  Thank you so much.

You should be proud of your Handbook, I am sure it will encourage etchers to try electro-etching and it will become the "bible" - I use lower case out of respect!

Congratulations! How wonderful that it has been published. I bought a copy through the link you sent me a while back and have read it a few times. I am in the process of trying to make my own little tank at home. With the help of your book I've got everything set up and am shortly going to try and etch a plate. I shall let you know how goes. Thank you again for being such a wonderful teacher -it has opened up a whole new line of enquiry for me.
