Hi folks. I'd like to demonstrate the Eurotool nine in one Texturing Hammer. The faces of the hammer are easily interchangeable by unscrewing the threaded collar and then re-screwing in another textured surface. The surfaces includes one called moonscape, which is just as smooth surface, a checkered board, which is the one I'm going to demonstrate, diamonds, a single square, one called rain, which is just these horizontal close together lines, Mount Everest, a dimple, a single round and a wide stripe. You can use the smaller designs to pinpoint texture in a certain area and the larger designs to cover a bigger area and it gets really interesting when you use multiple tips to layer texture on top of one another. I'm going to be texturing this sample piece of brass plate here. I'll texture here on top of a steel anvil, four-by-four steel anvil half inch thick on top of a rubber base which is real handy to prevent that the table from rattling very much. But I'll move these away and texture on top of this brass. Now the hammer only weighs eight ounces but it really does pack a wallop as you can see this textures really well. We like using this tool here and we've been doing it quite a bit at So I hope you enjoy the Eurotool nine in one Texturing Hammer. Go to for all of your beading supply needs!
