When polished, these brass blanks look much like the color of gold. Brass can tarnish very easily, so we suggest using renaissance wax
to help protect the pieces as well as storing your brass with anti-tarnish tabs.
Artisan Series Blanks
a new dimension to your designs with our Artisan Series. Each blank is
individually cast resulting in a hand-wrought quality. These pieces
differ from regular die cut blanks in several ways:
• Gauge: Blanks are approximately 19-gauge thick resulting in a solid pendant that has a substantial feel to it.
Surface: Due to the nature of cast objects, there are slight variations
in the surface of the blanks. They are not smooth like our die-cut
sheet metal blanks. To restore the original shine after oxidizing, they
can be polished by hand or in a tumbler after stamping.
Material: The copper-colored blanks are an alloy called “Red Bronze”.
It is casting material made up of copper, tin, and other deoxidizing
metals and is a standard in the jewelry industry. The majority of the
alloy is copper and the blanks can be soldered and enameled like pure
copper. The silver colored blanks are sterling silver. The gold colored
blanks are brass.
