This tutorial shows how to attach a flat object, in this case a letter, to another flat surface so that the letter stands in relief to the parent surface by way of soldering pins and peening to parent surface.

This method is very handy when one is unable to solder the object to the parent surface.

For instance, if the background was made of titanium, or had elements incorporated into it like enamel or organic materials that can't take heat.
