So your BANGIN babes need a little brightening up?!
Well, you came to the right place! Here we will share all the tips and tricks to keeping your jewelry shinning! If you still have questions after reading through this page, please email us!
flat brass cut-outs
If your babes have flat brass cut out pieces of any shape, they will be coated with a clear finish to help keep them from tarnishing while they wait for you! This finish may start to chip with normal wear. If this happens you may notice certain spots on your jewelry tarnishing, but not the whole piece. Don't worry, we have a solution for this! All you have to do is remove this coating and then you can polish your babes like normal! There is no need to re-coat your items, once this coating is removed they will be raw brass which can be polished as often or little as you like. If your design doesn't feature any bones or laminated flowers, you can soak the whole thing in acetone or finger nail polish remover for 10 - 15 minutes and the coating will be easily removable with paper towels, cotton balls, or a soft cloth. If your design does include either of these components, keep scrolling!
If your babes have brass dangles these dangles are also coated with a clear finish to keep them from tarnishing.
If your dangles are hanging from a brass cut-out, you can go ahead and remove the coating from both the dangles and the cut out pieces at the same time using the technique above. If your brass dangles are hanging from brass wire, this wire does not have a clear coating, but it is safe to soak the wire in fingernail polish remover with the dangles, so you can again use the method above. If your babes have brass dangles and laminated flowers, then you will not want to soak them, but instead use a Q-tip to carefully remove the coating from the dangles so you don't damage the lamination film with the finger nail polish remover.
If you do accidentally get some on on the lamination film, it's not the end of the world, just wipe it off right away.
cut-outs w/ bone or laminated flowers
For our brass cut out pieces that include bones or laminated flowers, the process is just a bit more involved. There are two options you can choose between.
#1 You can remove the bone or flower pieces using two pairs of pliers and simply opening the jump rings that are attaching them to the cut out piece (this is actually super simple to do and you can find tons of videos on how to properly open and close jump rings on YouTube) once you have removed the bones or flowers. simply follow the directions above.
#2 You don't remove the bones or flowers and simply use Q-tips to carefully remover the coating so that you can avoid getting it on the bones or lamination film. If a small amount does end up getting on either of these components, it's not the end of the world, just wipe it off right away. This option will just take a while longer to remove the clear coating.
If your babes include brass wire, this wire is not coated with a clear coat and you can go ahead and polish it with the polishing cloths that came with your purchase. You can polish as often or as little as you would like depending on how you want the brass to look.
Our hair pins are not coated with a clear coat and you can go ahead and polish them with the polishing cloths that came with your purchase. You can polish as often or as little as you would like depending on how you want the brass to look.
