    Hey everyone, I live in Saskatoon Sk and I was wondering of anybody knows where I could get some ferric chloride or PCB enchant locally? I have searched around without any luck. I tried vinigar with poor results. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You could try local art supply stores or electronic parts stores (often listed as circuit board enchant).

    Edit: I think there's a B&E Electronics in S'toon. They should carry it or be able to order some for you.

    Thanks for the reply, I tried b&e's website a few weeks ago and nothing came up. Maybe I can give them a shout this week and see if they can get it. I also tried the source because radio shack used to carry it. When I asked the guy if they had some he said "why? So you can throw it in people's eyes????" With a snarky attitude. That kinda made me mad.

    I found a recipe for some home made circuit board etch but I'm not sure if it will work. It's a mixture of muratic acid and hydrogen peroxide.

    Are there any other alternatives to etching damascus? I tried cold blueing but it all turned black.
