    Actually, this is called 'wriggle work' here in the U.S.

    A small, chisel-shaped blade set in a wooden handle is pressed into the aluminum at an angle and then pivoted back and forth while walking the tip of the blade forward to produce a length of these Z shapes.

    It's not that difficult to do, as long as your blade is sharp.

    You can sharpen an old small screwdriver to a chisel shape and use it. Or you can take a nail and square off the point, sharpen it to a chisel shape and then set the nail in a wooden handle.

    No hammer is required. Aluminum is soft enough to do this with the tool with hand pressure.

    It is good to know the technique. I have often contacted sellers to warn them that the definition of ``trench art`` is exactly seen in the very name: all you can do with limited tools available. Still, enameled pieces are still offered as `` trench art``, or even embroidery! What you cannot do at home now they could not possibly do it in the trenches.
