SO..... What is ETCHING? 

Etching is traditionally the process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected
parts of a metal surface to create a design in intaglio (incised) in the metal.[1] In modern 
manufacturing, other chemicals may be used on other types of material. As a method of 
printmaking, it is, along with engraving, the most important technique for old master
prints, and remains in wide use today. In a number of modern variants such as
microfabrication etching and photochemical milling it is a crucial technique in much
modern technology, including circuit boards. - Wiki

Simplifying things ; Etching is a form of transfering designs to metal. When the metal 
is exposed in the ferric chloride bath, the metal that is exposed will dissolve in the solution.
