Metal Punch Pin!

Yesterday’s blog post introduced you to the new hand held metal punches in the Metal Complex family of tools.  This little pin shows you how easy it is to add square, oval and circle punches to a metal blank.

My studio is filled with the Metal Complex product line.  For this small project I used Brass Oval Blanks (24 ga), bench block, hammer for letter punches, the three new plier hole punches (square, oval and circle) and some findings.

The metal alphabet I used I discovered the last time I shopped in the warehouse.  It is a new one: Storybook 3mm Uppercase.  I marked my metal blank and then stamped the letters with my hammer.

I applied pinotage gilders paste to my blanks to make the lettering pop.

Isn’t this alphabet gorgeous?  I wanted you to see how great the lettering is!  And look at the square punch!

My final steps were to add the rhinestone beads to my finished blanks.  I attached them with jump rings  to my gold 3 loop kilt pin.
