Tin is used in handicrafts to make the embossing technique.
Tin is a metallic, silvery and malleable material.
If you choose to work with tin, you must always take into account the fact that it is a toxic material, and therefore contact with it must be limited. A good and practical way is simply by wearing gloves.
Embossing is a craft technique that consists of working tin to obtain a relief drawing.
For the tin embossing technique you need:
the tin
The template with the drawing to emboss.
Gravers: These are tools used to engrave the design on the tin.
Difuminos: they are used to sink behind the tin, the reliefs.
And also patinas, judea bitumen, wax, cutter, and brushes.
It is done by working with burins of different sizes and shapes from the back of the piece, arranged on a soft surface that allows the progressive deformation of the worked surface. In this way, the craftsman works in negative, sinking more those areas that should obtain greater relief on the opposite side.
The final details of the drawing are obtained by working on the right side of the piece, outlining the drawing with finer burins to obtain greater definition.
The final step consists of reinforcing the piece to prevent the drawing obtained from being deformed with subsequent use. Depending on the nature of the material worked, this can be obtained by hardening the piece or filling the subsequent void with a malleable material such as wax, plaster or some rubber that, when dry, is hard enough not to allow the drawing to deform.
