Bead Table Wednesday Devoted to Patinas

Metals that have different Patina's applied
Bead Table Wednesday is designed by Heather Powers to help share what is on our table today.   Today I am showing some Vintaj natural brass with various patinas applied.  These are all ready to be made into jewelry. 

Prior of appling patinas I embossed seahorses on 4 of the rectangular pieces and round disk. I then washed the pieces to get any grease or dust off.  After the patina was applied I used a sanding block to remove some of the patina to give the pieces a rustic, vintage look.  Sealant was applied as the last step.  I now have pieces ready to use in creating 5 pairs of earrings and a pendant.
I appreciate your stopping by and seeing what is on my beading table this week.  Hopefully I can show the finish pieces next week.


  1. I just ordered some patina's and hopefully will be trying this soon :) What is a good sealant to use??
    Have a great day
