This is done by hammering the metal on a substance which will give some resistance to the blows. Simple tools are used in the operation. For iron- Fig. 83. Block Used in Embossing work, wood and lead are used as an anvil to hammer on. It requires considerable practice and some knowledge of drawing and modeling to do good embossed work.
