This is old work and recently found them they are part of a series of six. I love how this came out.

I really like the red outlines of the windows - it hints at sunlight or streetlights on the glass.

How did you add in the different use of colour? The only etching I have done is in black and white.

It wasn't that hard actually. You take the colors you want and with a rubber roller on a smooth surface (like glass). Roll over the paint until you get a gradient you are happy with. Note worthy the biggest issue is maintaining the consistency with of the gradient.

Wow so sorry about the beyond late reply. Ha

no black was used on the gradient. However, black was used on the line art. I hope this helps. 

Tahnk you again. 😄

I bet that one color would do the trick as well. The colours add some magic, but the Etching is remarkable.

Oh man thank you so much. Trust me it is possible. Just go in with a plan that helps a lot especially when dealing with acids. The color part that is just fun and you are right one color could easily makes piece work.

Even with a plan, man! your lines are neat, that is talent; it can't be learned: you have it or not. (you have it ) and the composition!

i tend to be more messy with the lines, it's a pleasure to see works like yours. No one knows how hard it is to have  a clean drawing in a  plate untill you make one.
