Pewter Embossing combines the antique art metal techniques known as chasing and repoussé-the modelling or embossing of thin, malleable sheets of metal with hand held tools to create a 3-dimensional decorative design.

Modern metal manufacturers have created pliable types of metal sheet or foil perfectly suited for the modern crafter to engrave, raise or emboss with basic tools giving their artwork volume and texture.

One of the great things about metal embossing is that you can keep it as simple or detailed as you want, making it an attainable medium to learn.

With a few simple tools, a small tray as workspace and the rich lustre of pewter sheet you can easily create beautiful art.
