***JUST A REMINDER COPPER AND BRASS WILL TARNISH. IF YOU WANT TO PREVENT TARNISH YOU WILL NEED TO ADD A CLEAR LAQUER FINISH OR USE RENAISSANCE PASTE.
CLEAN off TARNISH
Your blanks may arrive with a slight bit of tarnish. A quick solution for tarnished copper and brass blanks is to get a bowl full of soy sauce. I know it sounds weird, but it works. Let the blanks soak for about 30 minutes. Clean with dish soap and water. Make sure they are completely dried when you finish so you don't get strange streaking.
You'll want clean dry blanks before you add Renaissance Wax.

Here's a run down of the different types of aluminum I have available:
PURE 1100 ALUMINUM
Pure aluminum is FOOD SAFE and safe on your skin. A perfect choice for projects that will come in direct contact with your skin. There are less skin reactions with FOOD SAFE ALUMINUM, than with STERLING SILVER..
Metal Hardness is called Temper...
Very soft and great for metal stamping. Thick cuffs are easy to bend with the SOFT Temper. It takes a very clear impression and is very gently on your tools.
Stiff metal that will not bend out of shape. I use the HARD TEMPER for all charms and discs
3003 ALUMINUM - stronger but not as pure. THIS METAL IS MEANT TO BE COVERED OR FINISHED IN SOME WAY BEFORE BEING WORN.
***This is great for covering with fabric or as a BASE for POLYMER clay.
Hope this helps you decide what metal is best for your aluminum discs, aluminum cuffs, or ring blanks at Gotta Getta Deal on ETSY!!!
Have fun creating!!!
