  3. Run it through the machine. Remove the stamping from the die.
  4. Use the Vintaj Relief Block on both sides of the stamping to bring out the shiny brass.
  5. Next, using a paint brush dab on Vintaj Patina to the front of the stamping. Quickly wipe off any excess with a paper towel. You may add more or less patina to achieve your desired effect. Repeat on the other side of the stamping.
  6. Take one eye pin and string on one pearl. Make a simple wire loop, that faces the opposite way of the other loop.
  7. Open the one side of the eye pin, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to the stamping. Close the loop.
