What I call Asian Pewter, doesn't have the high relief like the more elegant western pewter work would have, it is more about the textures, design and the engraving. The Asian workshop teaches you about all the pattern tools, Eastern design and learning different textures. This is a beginners class.

This is not an easy project to do one at least needs to have done some pewter and you really need to have the hang of high relief. I certainly wouldn't attempt this as a beginner, it would be an advanced class. The pewter is stuck on to a wooden cut out, so tucking all the edges in is that hard part.
One thing I am going to have to do is take better photo's if anyone is going to want to see the detail in the work, but let me get the blog up and running in the meantime.
These happy little couple came from Mimmic who have amazing pewter supplies and I get most of my things from them unless I create something of my own. They are busy moving their offices and they are having problems getting wooden items to work on so until they have that sorted I am going to be doing a lot of my own objects to work on.
I have noticed over the past few years that Pewter appears to be a lot more popular in South Africa compared to other parts of the world. I want to use this blog for video tutorials and a place where if you do pewter and you need some help or want to know how to do something, you will be able to ask and I will do my best to help.
In the meantime this blog will be under contruction, so please be patient.
