Want to make even the newest of jewelry look antique? Then you've stumbled upon the right jewelry crafting video. Take a gander to learn how to color brass flower findings using Lumiere paints and Gilder's Paste.

These two colorants can add a vintage patina to your necklaces and bracelets.

In this video B'sue shares her latest techniques to colorize brass flower findings with Lumiere paints on a sponge, Gilder's Paste Accent and Diamond Glaze finish. She likes to drift very fine glitter into the final glaze for additional sparkle. Applying the Lumiere paints with a sponge on the clean metal takes on a washed tie-dye effect. Layer the petals to make dimensional floral clusters to wire on to a necklace crescent base (shown in the video) or to drip from chain to make showy designer necklaces.
