INTERMEDIATE CHASING AND REPOUSŚE/DIE FORMING FOR REPETITIVE REPOUSŚE AND UNIQUE CHASED TEXTURES

Die forming for chasing and repoussé is the process of pressing or hammering metal into a cut-out design in a hard, resistant material. The result is a puffed-out shape that can be repeated many times. The die is then flipped over, filled with pitch, and chased from the other side for making uniquely textured and designed hollow forms, multiples and mirror image designs. The main die material we will be using is a non-toxic PVC that is easy to cut and can be hammered without cracking. Using a hydraulic press and acrylic dies will also be covered. There will be a lot of instruction in chasing the resulting die-hammered forms, including making finished pieces.
