It's simple to create intricate designs on metal--and impart luster, radiance, and dimension--with the centuries-old art of embossing.  This in-depth workshop, packed with close-up images and instructional photos, explains it all: tracing and transferring patterns, cutting designs from the metal and attaching them to a surface, filling in, adding color and patina, finishing and varnishing, and texturizing.  Novices will find out how to use a wide variety of tools and products, and watch a project being made from start to finish.  An entire photographic section showcases a range of embossing designs, with their richly diverse textures. The exquisite projects--all with full-size patterns--include frames and framed designs, boxes, clocks, glass items (vases, decanters), and jewelry.
