More planishing

Carried on planishing the shallow copper bowl at the class this week. It is looking OK, but there are a few dents from the edge of the hammer. The two smaller pieces in the photo are also planished, from 0.5 mm copper sheet, but they'll need a stint in the tumble polisher to bring the finish back up again after pickling.

Hi. Looks good. Try using planishing as a final finishing process. Complete your work, polish to a high gloss and then planish with a highly polished planishing hammer. Do not pickle or tumble work after this as it will destroy the beautifully faceted finish you have just achieved. Good Luck
