This is a nice way to imprinting on metal sheets if you don"t have the right tool.

If your sheets is soft enough you can also imprint for example lace or some small net, or anything you like.

MATERIALS:
-dog food aluminum container (or thin soft metal sheets, like for example copper sheets);
-scraps soft wire (I used the copper wire that come from a washing machine engine);
-piece of thin thread canvas.

TOOLS:
-pasta machine;
-scissors;
-spoon.
 
Really clever! I like the patterns that you created in the twisted wire. Maybe try hanging the copper texture wire like fringe from your disk. The foil disc might need to be attached to something first. Japanese Paper?

I love this; however, do you have to use a dedicated pasta machine for metal projects like this?
marcellahella (author)  chefsea2 years ago
Pasta machine are way cheaper than a real metal imprinting tool, they are easier to find, and especially easier to find second hand to a fly market... so yes! Pasta machine is just a name, for me is a tool with 2 roller.
(Also for this project you don't need to make so much pressure to ruin it.)

Hey.... That's cool ! Any idea of an alternate to the pasta machine? I don't have one :-(

If you use soft enough sheets, you can burnish them by hand or with a soft (rubber or leather) mallet.

Just remember to pad them from the hard surface you use to pound them on--use a hard rubber anvil or plastic cutting board.
I am sure you could place the metal between sheets like she did but layer the top with a thin piece of plywood (top and bottom) and hammer the top of the board. I think it would work!

remember the old washing machines that required you manually ringing the clothes out by running them through two rolling pins? You could find those in old junk yards!

Mmm.. I don't know... may be if you hammer the sheets, but I never tried.
But if I come up with an idea I will write to you.
