Etching the Queen - work in progress

Etching plate and sketch for an etching of the queen based on a second class stamp.

The plate is zinc and coated in a liquid hard ground. I've used a needle stuck into a rubber to etch the plate, because my normal etching needle creates a much fatter line. I have no idea if this will etch ok! it might all just go to a blur when I put it in acid...
