Chasing & Repousse Supplies

Repousse (or repoussage) is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal (Steel, Tin, Gold, Silver, Copper and Bronze sheet metal) is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side. Chasing is the opposite technique to repousse, and the two are used in conjunction to create a finished piece. It is also commonly known as embossing. The top end of the chasing tool is struck with a chasing hammer while the work is held normally in a pitch bowl.
