Anodized Aluminum Inkjet Printing

I've been experimenting with printing on anodized aluminum foil using pool acidifier (to avoid having liquid acid around) to etch the surface. Anodizing is the same method used commercially for inkjet printing on aluminum (but at an affordable price). Haven't advanced to the tooling foil stage yet.

Seams to be interesting, but also seams that the printed ink could be easily delete.

This is a fascinating technique, I tried it on a model of the Lockheed Super Constellation I am working on.
The effect looks quite good. The only thing that took additional work was, that the panel edges tend to curl loose. I glued them down with Microscale Metal foil adhesive.
