REPOUSSAGE
Repoussage is a metalworking technique of ancient origin used by most early civilizations, in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by working from the reverse side.  The word repouss√© is French, meaning “pushed up”, derived from the Latin pulsare, “to push forward.” Intricate designs can be wrought on pliable metal, such as silver and copper, using this technique. JoAnne Norwood will teach us this skill. Come see how you can adapt this to your lettering. 


Supplies:
Pencil, eraser
12” metal ruler
Scissors, X-acto knife
Narrow masking tape
Tracing paper
Hard surface board – glass, Plexiglas, or cutting mat
Stylus, liner/outliners that you may have (we will have extras, don’t go buy any)
