"Steamed Grouper" - State #1

A close one! I didn't know I had left my burnishing tool at the Art Center until I rummaged around for it in my tool box this week. It's the one I use mainly as a sort of steel pen to make thick & thin lines in my etchings; essential. The Center's press closed today until January 11th so I had to finish scribing it when I got in this morning and get it etched in the tank - leaving *just* enough time for one print.

This is State 1; not much more to do but some burnishing of random dings and smoothing out the leftover power grinder marks on the beveled edges.
