Metal Embossing Wooden Trinket Box

Repousse Decorated Box

A great workshop from the summer , This is a workshop I taught in the summer. It was done for a group of ladies at Crafty Moments in Market Weighton .
The inside of the box is lined using a faux leather technique.
The outside of the box is painted first with black and then red oxide acrylic paint .
once the paint is dry the two layers are then sanded through to expose some of the metal.

The art of Repousse is the art of metal embossing or metal chasing, usually by hand . On this workshop we embossed both by hand and then using an embossing machine .


The top of the box is pictured above this is hand embossed with hand done faux rivets.

The front of the box hand scooched and machine embossed.
