Repoussé and Chasing Punches
From DT Online
Repoussé and Chasing Punches have a variety of shaped and textured ends to enable embossed designs and patterns to be produced on metal sheet.
Features and Uses
The two processes are often used together, Repoussé uses small shaped punches to emboss a design on sheet metal by working from the reverse side to raise a design on the face, and Chasing further works this design from the face to sharpen up the detail. The punches are repeatedly and lightly struck with specially designed Repoussé Hammers.
- Punches can be made by from scratch using tool steel bar stock or by re-grinding and polishing an existing tool (e.g. screwdriver, nail punch, centre punch)
