Techniques tips for beginners


I have started taking metal smiting lessons and I am very
enthusiastic to go on with it and start with the real designing work.
I was wondering if there are any tips for beginners on this forum and
explanations about the different techniques (like the chasing tech.
for example).


Lots of great info in the files on the www.ganoksin site - search
for the technique you are interested in. I’ve printed lots of the
articles out, and one day… not holding my breath… plan to put
them in a notebook with tabs…

Have fun “smiting” your metal !
