About Brass

Brass is a material commonly used in jewelry, accessories and home decor. It is a copper alloy containing 15% zinc, 5% tin and 80% copper and is capable of showcasing intricate details and offers a professional, finished look and feel. Brass will tarnish over time, but can be polished back to achieve a like-new surface.

Frequently Asked Questions

What finishes are available?

Natural: Light polishing to achieve a matte, somewhat rough surface
Polished: Hand-polished to achieve a smooth, shiny surface

Will this turn my skin green?

Brass can react with your skin leaving a non-harmful greenish tinge with wear over time. To prevent this, you may consider coating the inner diameter of rings with clear nail polish.

How is this material made?

Brass models are fabricated using lost wax casting. First, the model is printed in wax using a specialized high-resolution 3D Printer. It is then put in a container where liquid plaster is poured in around it. Once the plaster sets, the wax is melted out in a furnace, and the remaining plaster becomes the mold.

Molten brass is poured into this mold and set to harden. The plaster is broken away, revealing your new product. Natural Brass is briefly tumbled. Polished Brass is carefully cleaned and hand polished. Please be aware that polishing can wear down or fill in very fine details and edges.

Why is there a limitation of 6 interlocking parts per file?

For interlocking parts, we connect each wax part with a sprue and then cut and polish the sprue away after casting. Due to the intensive labor involved in every part we connect, we limit the number of parts allowed.
