Re: Metal Repousse with 4th Graders

for metal tooling in elementary i have the kids use tongue depressers cut in half
on the diagonal and sand the cut edge to smooth it. these provide a point, short
and long flat edges, and a curved edge for tooling lines and shapes. a thick pad of
newspaper underneath helps to acheive a good raised effect.
