What you need to make pewter keyring:

Read through all the instructions first before starting this craft.

Step 1

Stick paper pattern to pewter using masking tape. Trace pattern onto pewter using a small embossing tool. Press on a piece of felt or thin batting. The pressure of your tracing should be just a little harder than you would normally write with a pen.

Step 2

Remove paper pattern from pewter.

Step 3

Wearing a pair of gloves, put a little pewter patina onto batting and rub gently over pewter very quickly. Do not use too much patina and do not rub the pewter too hard.

Step 4

Immediately polish pewter with a piece of batting dipped in Brasso. The Brasso removes the black patina and eventually exposes the silver pewter again, leaving the recesses dark with raised areas silver.

Step 5

Once you have removed the black patina from the pewter, polish well with a very soft cloth until the pewter shines. Carefully cut out pewter heart with a fine pair of scissors.
