Hammering

pearl brooch with hammered edgeThe hammer is one of the most versatile tools when it comes to adding texture.

Patterns can be varied by the shape of the hammer, the force with which the object is struck, and whether the object is being struck on steel, lead, wood or pitch. The striking edge of the hammer can also be altered by filing into it, creating a new texture.
