Hey Robert,
That looks like quite an interesting job. Thanks for posting it.
I've done some half tone and mezzotint etchings.
Adding a paint fill can prevent a photograph etched onto glass from flipping between a positive and a negative image in certain lighting conditions.

Other ways to display etched photos without adding color are with edge lighting and controlled ambient light.
(These photos are tagged edge lit and non lit) The dot size depends greatly on the panel size and the contrast needed
for the photo to read well. Usually, a larger photo panel demands a larger dot size or it does not "pop" and
looks fuzzy or out of focus.

What Dave says Pat, seriously good.

This job has your name written on it.
How is it possible to fill in those miniscule points with paint, when the mask you make is rather thick (I guess) and when the mask must be still very dusty from blasting? Or can you hose the dust down easily with water?

Yes very cool new things to see on the forum: Dave, Vladimir and Pat who else?
Gives a hungry smile on my face, thank you.
Realizing we are in the 2nd renaissance of the arts.
Learn, copy and trying to improve...
Still in the learning phase ;-)
