I decided I wanted to try the ranger patina's I got at the Toronto Bead Society in the spring.
Here are the first colours I used.
Well here they are - they turned out pretty well.
I used a cue tip to dab it all over then used my dremel and sandpaper to sand off the raised areas and then dipped them in the Permalac EF let dry and then dipped again.
The patinas are sort of like enamels and easier to work with.
so six sets of earrings down, another batch etched and tomorrow I hope to have the final batches done and another six sets finished tomorrow night
