Instructions

Note: you will also need several rubber bands or hair bands for this project.
  1. To start this project, please watch the video: How to Cover a Brass Cuff in Lillypilly Copper Sheets.
  2. From what you learned in the video, adhere your copper sheet to your brass cuff using E6000 glue as shown in the video.
  3. Place the bands over the cuff to hold the copper sheet in place. Let dry.
  4. Remove the bands and trim your copper sheet as shown in the video.
  5. Next, gently curve your various gears and cogs using the bracelet bending pliers. You want the curve to mimic that of the bracelet. You might need to curve them with your hands as well. Look at the photo of the bracelet and see where the gears and cogs are positioned along the cuff. Place E6000 glue on the backside of each element and glue it in place. It is best to do one at a time and let if dry for a bit before moving onto the next. When all have been placed, let fully dry overnight.
  6. All done!
