The focus was on patterning here at my second live mokume gane Q and A session, held on April 2, 11am pacific time via Zoom. If you missed it, check out the video. Topics discussed include a general overview of the types of mokume gane patterning, annealing times and temps, chisel shapes, when to forge versus when to roll, etc. Includes a free direct hammer patterning lesson too. I'll be doing this monthly; next month the focus will be on finishing and patinas. My live viewers really enjoyed the bonus content - next one should be May 7th, same time, so keep an eye on my website and/or social media for it. Enjoy the recording, and please comment below for any questions you'd like answered next month. :-)

I'll see you Saturday. I found in the chiseling workshop, I tended to make the lines too thin and the more I tried to widen them, the deeper I went. Can you talk a little about line width and the different ways to vary.
