Aluminum Poundings

(chasing tools from Rene Bluhm on Ebay)

How do you do that?

It started with aluminum flashing left over from a chimney repair.
I tried to make a printable relief, which failed.
A blacksmith friend Larry Cooper saw, told me about repousse/chasing and made me three tools which resulted in the RedHerrings:
Driven by curiosity, I bought Oppi Untracht's book, "Metal Techniques for Craftsmen" at, found
on the internet showing me what some fine chasing/repousse was...
bought a set of chasing tools off ebay...
some pitch from , and Marcia Lewis' book "Chasing"....and I'm just having a good time.
Thanks for asking.
