19 Embossing technique

Embossing technique

Posted on December 22, 2009 by team


Embossing technique is applied in Iran to make ware, ornamental panels, various jewelry – the things that are so popular among the tourists. Like most of the merchandise embossed goods are made right next to souvenir shops, so we can watch a master working.

The relief on the sheets is created with help of specially produced instruments – chisels and set hammers that are usually made of metal or wood.

A relief or design can be embossed after putting the sheet on a birch or a lime log, on a thick felt or rubber, a seabag with beach sand, plasticine or resin layer, but sometimes a lead plate is more suitable.


For embossment the following metals are normally used: brass, copper, aluminum and steel 0,2-1mm thick, in some cases silver and gold are applied as well.


Here is a street vendor of copper sheets for chasers.

        Yeh I know thats not a Russian, so obviously its on the wrong website, fair enough, but Irans not a joke of a country; its a wonderful country with a disgraceful government (which is probably worse than Russias)

  8. Iran says:

    Oh and RK Iranians are not Turks! Turks and Persians are different races. Its like saying that ethnic slavic Russians are the same as the Yakut race

    • RK says:

      First of all, there are no races.

      Secondly, there is absolutely no mention of their supposedly Persian origin anywhere in the text, or on the photos. I assume that those photos were taken in Turkey by a Russian tourist, which kinda explains it’s presence on EnglishRussia, although I agree that they don’t belong in here.

    Iran my friends? Iran is headed for major problems on a world class scale. One way or another the Iranian government is doomed…it’s only a matter of when. The Iranian people are basically good people and intelligent. Too bad they allowed a fanatical religious mafia to ruin things.
