Retired - Steam Powered Ring

PROJECT R606
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Watch parts, cogs, and wheels adorn this steampunk themed copper colored ring. Silver highlights bring out the details and make this ring 'pop'!
Instructions
You will love how easy this ring is to make!
  1. Begin by snipping off the loop part of your button on the backside. Please do not use your good flush cutters for this, it will destroy them. If you have a pair of wire cutters in the garage or your utility drawer, use those. Cut as close to the flat part of the button back as possible.
  2. Using your diamond file, sand down any raised rough edges remaining from where you snipped the loop off. You want it to be flush with the button itself.
  3. Watch this video here about applying Gilders Paste with your fingers and without a paint brush. Carefully apply silver Gilders Paste to the raised areas of the button. Be sparing and only apply to the raised details, you want a lot of the copper to show through.
  4. Once dry, spray 3 light coats of clear matte finish acrylic spray sealant. Let dry between each coat. We used a product put out by Mod Podge which can be found at many craft and art stores. Let dry fully.
  5. Take your ring band and place a dab of E6000 onto the flat glue-on pad. Press this into the center of your Steampunk button backside. Let dry fully.
  6. You're all done! Enjoy!
