Brass Finding - Connector with 4mm Oval or Marquise Setting Pkg - 10

This brass element was stamped using the original vintage die and press in use since 1904 in a factory that has been producing stampings and jewelry findings for 4 generations. Save bundles by using these raw stamping and adding your own finish. It's very quick and easy to patina or antique brass. Follow the instructions below for a wonderful finish.

The sample shown above has an antique oxidized heat patina. Brass oxidizes to a beautiful warm brown color that is easy to reproduce.

Follow these easy instructions to create an antique oxidized heat patina on raw brass:

  1. Abrade the surface of the metal lightly with a 30 grit 3M Bristle disc or Scotchbrite pad.
  2. Heat the raw brass slowly with an oxidizing flame (for a butane torch, keep the end of the flame about 1 inch away from the surface of the metal). Heat slowly to build up oxidation. Air cool or quench in water and dry.
  3. Remove the oxidation from the high spots by buffing lightly with a coarse Scotchbrite pad or wheel, or use a steel scratch brush.
