One traditional blacksmithing technique is repousse, a skill which derives from armoury. It is sheet metal work which involves repeated annealing and cold working to create a decorative motif. It is not formed over a pattern, as is often supposed, but is hand crafted using various tools and stakes. This means that any design of any size can be created, and each one unique.
