Goodnight Moon Pins Tutorial
Created by: Polly Nobbs-LaRue
- Cut loops off the moon charms and file smooth.
- For one pin, antique the brass components and bar pin with Win-Ox™ before assembling. Allow the parts to dry. Polish with a soft cloth if desired.
- NOTE: It is not safe to use Win-Ox on aluminum, so this design must be antiqued before assembly, or not at all.
- Mark, punch and rivet the moon charm to the bar pin, following directions included with tool. Rivet the moon so it covers the bar pin's catch.
- For more information on using this riveting system, check out this instructional video.
