Metal Embossing/Repujado at Ysleta

February 18, 2012 Ysleta Branch Library hosted a workshop on Metal Embossing/Repujado.  Repujado is an ancient metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is shaped to create a design. Thirty patrons attended this workshop taught by Ysleta Branch staff member Gabby Flores. They worked their designs on an aluminum medium and then colored with paint/marker. Beautiful 3-dimensional art was created surely to be displayed and enjoyed by all.
