Pewter sheet is one of the most pleasing metals on which a handcrafter can give expression. It is an alloy of tin and lead. Combined in various proportions, pewter sheets are available in several qualities and thickness . It may also contain metals such as copper and bismuth. Pewter may therefore differ from supplier to supplier.

The importance of careful practise cannot be overstressed if you wish to create articles of appeal and beauty above average. The sheets are easily scratched and marked, therefore special care should be taken at ALL stages during handling and storage. Always store sheets wrapped in a protective covering and smaller pieces in a container.
