Project Instructions

Wear your safety goggles before handling dapping tools.

 

Take one large copper tone square metal blank, place it on your steel bench block, hold metal blank with your long nose pliers and pound on the metal using the first side of your textured hammer. Take your center punch and punch a hole directly through the middle most part of the blank. Repeat on a second copper tone blank to make two sets. This will now be called “copper square.”

 

Take one large brass tone square metal blank, place it on your steel bench block, hold metal blank with your long nose pliers and pound on the metal using the second side of  your textured hammer. Punch 5 holes through the metal blank starting from one corner without a hole. Each of the 5 holes should be about 2mm distance apart from each other. Rivet the 5 holes Repeat on a second brass tone blank to make two sets. This will now be called “brass square.”

 

Take one small square blank with an open center and place it on your steel bench block, hold the metal blank with your long nose pliers and pound on the metal using your ball-peen side of the hammer. Make one hole on one corner of the square. Repeat on a second open square blank to make two sets. This will now be called “open-square.”

 

Align the hole of your first open square to the middle hole of your first copper square. Attach holes with one rivet to secure. 

 

Align the top hole of your first brass square to the bottom hole of your first copper square. Attach holes with one rivet to secure. 

 

Repeat the two steps above using your second set of: copper square, open-square and brass square.

 

Take one earring post and attach on the top- back part of your copper square with your E-6000 glue. Repeat on your second earring set using your second earring post. Wear with earring backs. 

 

Your earrings are now complete.
