Medium Green Chaser's Pitch, formulated and developed by Metal Sculptor Debra Montgomery, is organic pine rosin based pitch. Blacksmiths, Sculptors, Armorers and Jewelers alike have found this type of pitch suitable for years. It is excellent for medium to high relief work and can be worked slightly warm using a heat gun. In cold temperature this pitch will release metal. For deeper repousse keep the pitch a little warmer, for crisper work like planishing, keep the pitch a little cooler. For extensive planishing or crisp line work, consider the much denser Red German Pitch.

Nechamkin Silver StudiosNOTE: Nechamkin Medium Green Chaser's Pitch is sold in 5 lb increments.
Be sure to order enough to fill your bowl plus a little extra to replenish the bowl and fill in the embossed work. An 8" diameter deep pitch bowl from Otto Frei takes roughly 5-7 lbs of pitch to fill depending on if you prefer it mounded up or flush.

Rio Grande Jewelry Supply Blog: What Was Your Best Purchase of 2011? - Jewelers Share Their Favorite Finds

"I really like it! Worked great. Used it to pitch a helm for chasing. Stuck nicely since I couldn't put it in a bowl as usual. Very controllable." - Heather McLarty - President, Board of Directors - Adams Forge

"It warmed through well with a heat gun or hair dryer, that is the top surface did not become napalm dangerous but heat transmitted fairly smoothly and well through the pitch to a depth of half an inch, turning the mat erial, it was possible to warm it to handleable one could warm it, hold it in the hand, push it into recesses, all at a reasonable temperature, similar to the red pitch from Fischer. Very good for finer work. With finer work, such as using a liner, or tracer or oval forming tool it had very good resistance. Better than other pitches. Really recommended for this kind of work. Many pitches, like the German red pitch, when one uses a liner, tracer etc., would bend in nearby. This pitch does not, in other words has excellent resistance, allowing detail without compromise. Excellent for lining , tracing, precise work. This part is a special attribute worth mentioning." - Charles Lewton Brain Author: The Jeweler's Bench Book and Foldforming; Co-Founder: Ganoksin Project

"The biggest advantage I've found with this pitch is that it supports the metal so well, finer detail is much easier. I get pristine lines and fine plannishing marks with about half as much effort and therefore in half as much time. This advantage alone is enough to make me a convert. " - Victoria Lansford - Independent studio metalsmith, producer of the Metal Techniques of Bronze Age Masters

"Thank you for sending me the pitch so promptly. I am delighted with your product, from the presentation -easy to use small pieces of pitch, thru to getting it into bowls and getting started. This whole process was very quick. Your pitch seems to like being softened by heat gun or soft flame. AND such a lovely smell, that makes you feel great about your work! I and my students have been trying it out in cold weather, the resin is crisp and hard but sufficient softness can be maintained with heat applications. It means the pieces often come away almost clean. Small traces of this pitch can be removed with mineral oil. We love it and recommend it to everyone. " - Sarah Gascoigne - Independent Metalsmith & Designer Jeweler and Instructor at Pratt Fine Arts Center, Seattle WA
