Put on gloves when working with sheet metal. It’s a sharp material and can easily cut you.

Follow the instructions to age metal quickly in this tutorial. After the metal has aged and dried. Cut off a large corner from the sheet metal material.

    Great idea. On other sheet metal projects..like your cute stars, do you think I can do a tin punch (using drill) pattern along the edges that give it a little “old timey” effect.

    Love your blog…Thank you for sharing. You are an inspiration! And we are “tool time” kindred spirits!! 🙂

    Merry Christmas to you & yours!!
