What are the basic properties of different metal sheets, and how to handle them? How to make a decent lining? Texture fills? Line fills? How to make a relief in the piece with our without flipping it? How to flip it at all?

Historical background: Chasing and repoussé is a family of metal decorating techniques that is as old as metal working itself. It consists of modeling and marking the surface of metal sheets (or objects) without losing any material (unlike chiseling). You will have a range of symbols to choose from, the palette consists mainly of steppean cultures (Scythian, Hun, Avar, Early Hungarian) and some Celtic designs for good measure.

Today's change of materials and tastes and the appearance of computer aided machinery and 3D printing set the art of chasing and repoussé in the exclusive range.
