Find instructions and supplies to get started dapping your jewelry pieces to dome the metal! Dapping creates a curved surface that reflects more light than a flat surface, which results in a more captivating piece. A wood dapping set is ideal in jewelry making because it is gentler when curving the metal and will not scratch or mar precious metals. There are lots of materials that can be dapped, such as sheet metal, coins, bottle caps, tokens, gears, charms, and stamping blanks.
