Copper Repousse & Metal Art
by: Debra Montgomery of "A Copper Rose"
About the Artist:
Debra is a metal artist from Dunlap, CA, specializing in copper repousse and welded metal sculptures. She works with all thickness of copper depending on the design. She typically uses medium green pitch and either a pitch bowl or a large pitch "board" she put together for the larger pieces of work she has done. She often uses hand held chisels and punches to hammer out the design, although on most current project, due to the larger size, she uses an air hammer as well.
