Pink Antiqued Brass Flower Stamping Earrings Tutorial


I adore raw brass findings and stampings, and already carry several styles in my shop, Alyssabeths Vintage.  These pieces are so easy to use as is or to age or patina using several different methods from fumes, to chemicals and even paints.

These sweet little flower stampings are found in my shop, I often used them as cabochons in jewelry creations but decided to punch a hole into them to create connector pieces (I found my metal punch at Michaels in the jewelry section)


Then I cleaned with brass pieces and buffed just a bit with a low grit file to give the pieces extra texture to hold the paint.  Once good and dry apply paint, I used regular acrylic craft paint in pink, again let dry completely.

After these have dried I removed bits of the pink paint with a low grit file until I felt that I had enough of the golden raw brass showing, then sealed with a clear matte finish (make sure your pain or sealer is lead free).

Waiting some more.... and then I simply added gold earring hoops and vintage Czech glass rhinestone teardrops!  So easy and very little time!


Happy Crafting!
Beth
