Pauline Warg Matting Tools

Item #
383-271-GRP

Expertly hand-crafted tools which, when struck, create highly polished, delicate, and dense textures and patterns. Matting tools have many uses:

  • Impart a unique design to metal surfaces that will hold patinas such as liver of sulfur
  • Eliminate scratches or marring on metal surfaces
  • Create visually interesting textured backgrounds that shine through transparent enamels
  • Cover a metal piece with texture in order to transfer the texture to metal clay pieces or by rolling through a rolling mill.

Warg Matting Tools are meticulously fabricated by hand and are sold individually. Made in USA.
