Emboss two Trailing Leaf Vintaj Natural Brass Altered Metal blanks using the Botanical Flourish DecoEtch die. Apply Onyx Vintaj Patina to the impressions on the blank and use a paper towel to remove the Patina while it is still wet, leaving it only in the impressions to accentuate the design. Buff with the Metal Reliefing block to highlight the raised designs. Punch or drill three holes at the bottom of each etched blank. Attach strung elements to fine ornate chain to create a cascading chandelier effect. Attach each etched blank to an Arched Ear Wire to form earrings. If desired, Vintaj Glaze can be used as a sealer for natural metals to prevent oxidation. It is fast-drying, durable and permanent with a satin finish.
