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.

Red German Pitch

Pieh Tool
Weight: lbs
Pitch is used for chasing and repousse. We prefer the red German pitch over other pitches. It isn't brittle and is very forgiving. It is far less toxic and easier to use than black pitch and yields better results.

Red German pitch provides excellent results. You don't have to burn it off. It is harder than the Black German pitch and comes in 2 kg. bread-pan containers and is easy to remove. It is perfect for chasing small scale designs on copper, silver or gold. It provides firm support for the metal during chasing, and yet it is soft enough to allow embossing a shallow relief using the repoussé technique.

Imported from Germany.
