Focus on patterning
I'm hard at work this fall creating mokume gane patterning samples for inclusion in an upcoming book by Hiroko Sato-Pijanowski. Most of the patterning will be done using the traditional Japanese method of carving with a chisel, then flattening. But there will also be room to include some other patterning techniques - these photos show hammering the mokume with a cross pein hammer, and also hammering with steel stamps and wire into the surface. Both are still 'top down' techniques and involve a lot of tedious stock removal (filing), but I'm pretty happy with the results.
