Awhile back I decided to follow the advice of a local Trader Joe's cashier, and put brand name tags on my jewelry. I purchased some Beloved Bijou label charms from The Charm Factory. I chose some cute little heart charms with a nice script engraving. The biggest downside is that they only came in silver and gold color, and I use quite a bit of antiqued brass.
As a result, I have recently been experimenting with ways to make my label charms match my antiqued brass pieces.
When I was done the patina was so thick that I couldn't read the engraving so I got out my nail buffers to try to buff it down a bit. These have a very fine grit, and can be purchased from Mary Kay or Sally Beauty Supply
All in all I look forward to using the Vintaj Patina on more of my metal pieces. I can't wait to use it to add dimension and color to otherwise meh components.
Have a great day!
