Mizzy wheel creates fine shimmery striations by drawing a rotating stone across the surface of the metal.
Tighten your mizzy wheel into your flex shaft or Dremel. Hold metal securely in one hand while other hand draws the spinning mizzy wheel toward you across the surface. The harder you press, the deeper the impression. Sweep many times to texturize entire area.
Sanding disk creates satiny swirls if the surface is disked in multiple directions.
Tighten sanding disk into your flex shaft or Dremel. Hold metal securely in one hand while other hand glides the spinning sanding disk along surface. Turn the metal in various directions to create a random pattern.
Voila! You’ve just added a level of interest and sophistication to your jewelry!
