USE RENAISSANCE POLISHING WAX TO PREVENT THIS:
HOW TO BEND A TIE BAR OR MONEY CLIP
***Use Bail Pliers
***Use our Money Clip / Tie Bar Bender Instructions
TARNISH on Copper and Brass
Copper and brass do tarnish very quickly. Once you put the Renaissance Paste on them this will slow that down the process.
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 5 minutes in a plastic container. 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.
****I recommend using Bail Making Pliers to add the curve on these.*********
*******Here's a video on how to bend these:
These blanks are perfect for metal stamping.

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..
3003 ALUMINUM - stronger but not as pure. THIS METAL IS Commercially Pure and could cause skin irritation for a few people. This metal is fine for designs that do not touch your skin - tie bars, money clips...
***This is also great for covering with fabric or as a BASE for POLYMER clay.
Sterling Silver - .925
Surgical Steel - 316L
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. Soft temper can be hardened by hammering the surface with a nylon non-marking hammer. Check our shop for this item
Stiff metal that will not bend out of shape. Use the HARD TEMPER for all charms and discs.
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!!!
