A few weekends back I took a repousse class with Hollly Gage. Great class. The technique is something that I've been wanting to try on the coin pendants that I have been creating. Here is the result.
The first one came out OK. It was the result of just learning the process and getting a feel for how much pressure is needed on the mold to get a good impression.
This second one is much better. I had a better feel for how to do it to get a good impression and I put more work into the surface texture to give it a hand hammered look.
It was a fun class and Holly is a great teacher!! I really want to see her come back to Cleveland to teach her pod class. And bring Chris....his gourmet lunches were gooooood!!
