Repousse

Just finished a commission that I did some Repousse for.  Made me really want to make some Repousse tools.  Here's a link to a site I found that's a great source:

Soon I'll post a picture of the commission.

Annealing Aluminum


Accidental Metalsmith's at it again..
I don't work with aluminum, but I'd like to and I'm sure someday it will happen.
Watch this video to get an idea of how some people accidentally stumble upon a career in metalwork.  They also demonstrate annealing aluminum.

Forging the Human Face

It's when I see videos like this one "Forging the Human Face" that makes me wonder why I'm so set on casting with bronze... maybe I need some fancy hammers...
