I this episode NYbill talks about etching copper PCB boards at home..

Tinting fluid (I didn't buy it here. This is just a good pic of the product I used):
Anyone driving through the Capital District of New York, this old, locally owned, electronics shop is still kicking:
A few things I forgot to mention in the episode. The muriatic acid/hydrogen peroxide etching solution can be used multiple times. Store it in plastic or glass containers. The tinting fluid can also be reused. But, it will need to be agitated and or slightly heated (place container in a bath of hot water) before reuse as the mix will settle out.
