Embossing Cement


Andi B.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm new here in this forum!

To create fittings for my tanto projects I will use chisels, gravers, punches and a mini drill machine. The chisels etc. will be do-it-youself pieces.

 

Now my questions:

To fix the work piece I have embossing cement - a rust colored hard lump.

How is this used and prepared?

1) I assume this cement will become softer when heated - how can this be done?

2) Where should it (the cement) be placed to assure an easy working (in a "pitch bowl" or a similar construction)?

 

Any instructions / images and hints out there?

 

Thank you

You might consider looking at www.glendo.com, which is GRS's Engraving tool supplier. They have a product called Thermo-Lock which I believe would be equivalent to the product you are mentioning. They have a small tutorial on there products section. Hope this helps.

Welcome to The Carving Path Andi B.! I am not a metals person, so others will have the answers for you. It may take a little while for activity here, these last days before the big holidays and the new year.

 

Thanks for the links to your web site pages.
