Metal Smithing- working with metal, is so much fun with the use of these wonderful Deco Emboss and Deco Etch folders from Vintaj.  They are made in conjunction with Sizzix so they will work in any of your Sizzix machines.  I have a Cuttlebug and they also work in that.
 
Vintaj does make a line of brass blanks you can use with these- but here are Articus Studio, we carry a number of brass blanks that you can use and the pricing is so much better allowing you to create wonderful and unique projects for Christmas, gifts, birthdays, anniversarys in jewelry, scrapbooking, frames, books, etc.  Earrings are a wonderful and easy use with the Deco Emboss or Deco Etch Vintaj dies.

Articus Studio Brass Blank Embossed with Vintaj Die

This is the look you get using the Deco Emboss dies- deeper raised design. 

Brass Blanks to use with the Vintaj Deco Emboss or Deco Etch Sizzix Dies.

The Articus Studio brass blank dies are the same ones used by Vintaj except Vintaj has added a dark copper patina to theirs.  They are the same thickness and some of the shapes are the same, some different.  I have used them in the Vintaj blanks with complete success. 
You may color your blanks with acrylic paints, run them through the die and sand some of the color from the raised area by using sand paper- whether it is in the form of Vintaj brand, Tim Holtz Sanding Grip, our Lucky Squirrel block, etc.  You can also use the green sink scrubby for your pots & pans- I often use that to brighten and clean metal.  You could also use a metal nail file.  You can use what you have around the house to achieve the same look. 
You can color your brass blanks with alcohol inks and then use acrylic paint or dabbers over that.  The varieties of looks you can achieve is virutally endless.  You can have many different looks on your metal with just one Vintaj die- just depends on where you place your metal blank on the design.
 
My favorite look has been with the Deco Embossing folder Dies.  I like the Deco-Etch, but I think for what I like to do- the embossing folders do it for me.  Just a matter of preference.

The Vintaj Deco Etch dies create more of an impression on the brass blanks.  If you want a design stamped into the metal- this one will work for you.  Again, our brass blanks work beautifully with the dies and you get more for your money.  You can color them with patina solutions on the market, household supplies, acrylic paints and glazes, alcohol inks, and more.

ATTN:  MAC Users & Ipod Phone Users~
For some reason Mac/Ipods & Paypal do not work well together.  For some Mac & Ipod users, the Paypal cart will dump after several things are added to the cart.  I might suggest you write the item numbers down that come up when you "add to cart".  If it does dump, you can call -740-477-1238 or email your order c_byers1@msn.com.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  I have notified Paypal of this problem, but so far it has not been fixed.
 
 
 
PLEASE make sure your Paypal ADDRESS is CORRECT before placing your order.  Thanks!  It also helps to have a correct email address if I need to contact you re your order.  Thanks.

ANY large dollar order~~
The shipping on every order goes up with the total of the sale.  Many of the things are small so the larger shipping is not warranted, so then I refund the difference.
