Chasing

In this process the chaser makes a wooden block, puts on shellac and the sheet is pressed on it at the right temperature, so that it adheres to it. The exact detail of the design are first made using a sharp tool. The sheet then goes through an extensive process of hammering from the front as well as the back using a variety of punches, chisels and hammers. The dents around the area are removed by filing it or sand papering it. For polishing micro motors are used. Tiny little buffs with abrasive hair are used to even out the surface.
