    In my opinion Rodger is totally correct. The true Damascene is as illustrated by him in the photos and is applied in a slightly different way than over lay or inlay work. The gold used in True Damascene work is normally about .001 or less thick. Check out this video for a total example. In order to roll gold this thin it must be rolled in between two pieces of stainless foil and requires special techniques to cut the designs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgP2ENTwwTE

    In order to do true Damascene one must be a gluten for punishment. I have started it but do not plan to do much of it. I have the .001 gold and some 24K wire that is .0005. Makes me wonder why a person would subject themselves to this much agony. It is truly a form of insanity. Close to some of Phil Cogan's portrait work.
