Can the Sizzix BIGkick REALLY EMBOSS METAL?
Yes! You can make beautiful embossed metal with the Sizzix BIGKick and use that metal to make fun jewelry!
Have you stepped into a Michael's, JoAnn's or A.C. Moore lately? If so, you might have seen the Sizzix BIGKick and wondered what more can it do beyond embossing paper? If you own one you might be wondering the same thing!
The secret is to use the correct gauge metal (real thin), have a detailed design pattern that will result in great metal definition (there are lots of them out there) and use an oxidizing agent like Liver of Sulfur to give the metal a neat patina. Then you fold and form into earrings, cuffs, pendants. Add some fun beads and VOILA!!
Not only that but also imagine making jewelry and only needing to use rivets and small plier punches. Super ideal for anyone who is not ready for the torch yet!
