|20 ga. bronze craft wire|
It needs to be a sort of dull bronze. Coincidentally (ever notice how often that word comes up in the Kingdom of Coco?) we saw a tutorial on the Beading Daily blog for making beads out of wire.
That was pretty easy! And we ended up with a nice bead....albeit a shiny bead.
We read that you can give copper and bronze an antique-y patina with a chemical called "liver of sulphur" but we also read that it's more toxic and difficult than we're comfortable with. A quick internet search (where would we be without Google?) suggested there's an all-natural alternative. That's for us!!

In the morning, we opened the Ziplok bag and laughed our maniacal mad scientist laugh.
Can world domination
be far behind?
Cassie's interested in science, too!
