Sample text

Although it will work harden, it will never achieve the hardness of sterling. Once it is heated, it becomes practically as soft as butter. Chased and repoussé pieces in fine silver are most successful when the last process is a hardening one or the design involves a fair amount of deformation of the sheet metal (raised, folded, and creased areas). Hundreds of years ago, it was discovered that adding a small amount of copper to silver created an alloy that retained most of the good qualities of pure silver but also increased its strength.

To get started, dapping punches can be used for repoussé. As you progress you will probably also want real repoussé punches like those shown in the center of this picture. Wooden and plastic repoussé punches. Small Chisels and Gravers Chisels cut metal, either by slicing away small curls of metal (as in cutting out a groove), or by cutting right through. Not widely used now, in antiquity chisels did the jobs we now do with scissors or a saw. Though chisels are not traditionally listed with chasing punches, chiseling is often an important part of the chaser’s repertoire of related techniques.

Metals for Chasing and Repoussé Nonferrous metals, from ordinary copper to precious metals such as gold and silver, are worked cold with chasing and repoussé techniques.
