Eastern Repoussé and Chasing DVD

$99.95$314.95

Learn the secret of texturally sculpting metal into any shape or design of high or low relief with the technique of Eastern repoussé and chasing, used by the ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Scythian metalsmiths. Explore how to achieve exquisite detail, unsurpassed depth, and multiple levels of relief that are exclusive to this type of repousse, yet applicable to any type of design. End the confusion about where to hammer, with which tool, and how hard. Make several pieces suitable as pendants or brooches and discover the possibilities of using this process with alternative materials, such as mokume gane and bi-metal.. By working on a jewelry scale, you will develop a working knowledge of repousse and chasing that can be used on metalwork of any scale whether wearable, functional, or sculptural.
