» Anodized Aluminum Red Earrings
Learn the difference between using the French Shears and the Scissor Shears to cut your metal.
- Great Tip: Create a paper template of the shape you want to cut out. If you need 2 for earrings double up the paper so you have identical shapes.
- Using a glue stick, attach the template to the sheet.
This will work as your stencil to know where to cut!
- If you find the edges are too rough you can use a file to soften the metal.
