Metal Repousse

Mariah's bracelet
Following our Art History chapter on religious art we look at metal repousse techniques.  This is where we raise the metal to create low relief sculptures.  We talk about how lines and patterns can create the most interesting of textures.  We also talk about antiquing to help the metal look old, like it came from the middle ages.
