Engrave,Etch, or Emboss Silver? Answered

I want to imprint the white tree of Gondor on a silver disc that is 1 1/2 inch in diameter, given the complexity of the design, what would be the best way to achieve this? and what tools would I need to do it?


I would electrically or chemically etch it (same thing essentially, different method)

Weird, but the answer is the same as the last time you asked this question


You would classically use a "graving tool", which you can buy, or fabricate from an old file. Then you engrave the metal, by pushing the graving tool over the work.

But silver is an expensive material to practice on - find yourself a piece of copper first.


All methods would work, but Id say etching or embossing would work. IDK how silver would work though, and a laser cutter would probably be good for etching
