In the end, there were no internal structures and I have burned out the fumes. I just got a few uniform ripples from going to fast from a single direction instead of hammering more slowly and evenly throughout the entire dish. That created some ripples that I am having a hard time getting out. I want random dents and the hammered affect, I just don't want the uniform ripples. I will not bondo it. Question
: Will heating it with a torch make the metal softer?
Started out as this after my son dropped it.
Now I have this. Need to get the ripples out, paint it flat or satin, accelerate the rust in the dish and clear coat it.
