These brass cuff bracelets are wonderful for stamping, beading, decoupage, wrapping, polymer clay, etching, embellishing, simply wearing as is and more. For beading, bead onto Lacy's Stiff Stuff then attach to cuff, cover the inside with soft Ultra Suede for a full finished appearance. These cuffs are natural brass and will continue to oxidize. If you wish them to remain untarnished, plan on polishing regularly or sealing them. Note these cuffs are not polished to a high, perfect shine. They are meant to be the start of your artistic design and to be covered or polished once the design is complete.
