German Red Pitch -2 Kilo (4.4 pound) Tub

 

Imported from Germany, Also Called German Brown Pitch-The Best Selling Pitch in the World

 

Imported from Germany, this brown colored German pitch (also called red German pitch) is a mixture of natural resin, powdered brick and tallow. Customers who have used this pitch have called it a far superior product as it a great combination of hardness and melting temperature. This is the pitch that is supplied with every pitch bowl kit we sell. Sold in a 2-kilo (4.4 pound) tub.  The #1 selling Pitch in the USA.

 

To use, place the pitch in a suitable pitch bowl and heat in an 250 to 300 degree F oven.  To find out more about this pitch and the art of chasing, you can read about it in the book, Chasing: Ancient Metalworking Techinique with Modern Applications by Marcia Lewis 

 

Other books on the subject include Moving Metal by Adolph Steines  and Practical Goldsmithing, Chasing and Inlay Work . The latest book on chasing is Chasing and Repousse' by Nancy Megan Cogwin.

 

Here is a great posting on using pitch and pitch bowls from Brian Meek.

 

And another posting from Charles Lewton-Brain on pitch in general
