Planishing

Whitesmithing | |

Hi,

I have recently been commisioned to do a Firefighter's garden style weather vane. Part of my design is to build a fireman's helmet which I have done. My problem is that I have not really done any planishing before and I would like to get all the little hammer marks and hills and valleys out of the helmet so that it is very smooth. Please let me know if anyone could tell me how to do this. I don't have a pitch bowl or english wheel and it is too late to get one now because the deadline is approching very soon.

Hello, I'm sorta new to this whole metal art thing, although I am not new to metal. I am a fabricator. I weld, braze, do auto body, paint, and also TEACH. I am a "shop teacher" in a rural part of Alaska.

lI posted this picture to make sure that I could do it again. Big hint, remember to click on the cameran not the little picture. At anyrate, two years ago I made two birdbaths from copper. One pedestal was made from cheap short wire fencing that we were throwing away.
