The HMR-22 when used with overlapping blows will result in a texture similar in appearance to broken sandstone. This texture can add dramatic contrast when used next to smooth surface areas.
Both faces of this Fretz® texturing hammer have a crosshatch pattern to produce a textured effect on either curved or flat metal. Start with the flat textured face, then planish with the domed textured face. While almost any hammer can be used to create texture on metal, texturing hammers are specially designed for the purpose of creating attractive and unusual textures on your jewelry designs; the pattern on the hammer face is transferred to the metal with every strike.
