I wanted my Art History students to get the "feel" of repousse, so I
brought in aluminum foil and popsicle sticks. Some of the work was
amazing! I didn't use a technique book -- but I showed them various works
utilizing repousse. I found a lot of images in books of Byzantine and
Celtic art.

Hope this helps.
