Hey all, I haven’t left you hanging, just been focusing on some other “behind the scenes” aspects of JewelryMonk, planning on some growth, but I am checking in today with a quick little tip for you.
I have used patterned rollers in my rolling mill to get different textures in metal, and I have seen people use things like cloth, leaves, and other things to texture metal. Here is a quick example of how I made an impression in a piece of copper with textured wallpaper.
I apologize for not having all the images of the textured wallpaper pieces that I used, but I picked them up for free as samples at a wallpaper store. There are many shapes and textures to play with. What I did was cut out a leaf shape from one of the samples and rolled the softened copper down about 20% or so. That left the impression in the copper and I cut out the shape with a Saw Framewith a 3/0 Saw Blade, leaving about a 1mm-2mm border on the outside of the impression.
I know it was a quick tip, but it is pretty neat and I thought I would try to spur up some imagination in you today, I hope I did.
As always, thanks for following along this journey.
Now go make your impression on the world.
