Description
Chasing and Repoussé is an ancient art done with simple tools. Sadly, those tools can be quite expensive to purchase. Luckily they are also easy to make using simple and affordable tools. I will cover what common tools and materials are needed and where to purchase them. (Even better, you may well have a friend or neighbor with most or all of the necessary tools who might let you borrow them!) Just as important, you'll also have the knowledge to make many other custom tools for decorating or shaping metal. I will demonstrate making some of the different tool shapes and provide some tool profiles for you to use when making your own.
