Buy pin backs

Buy pin backs next to where you buy your pins. You can get them in a wide range of materials and styles.

Many are content with just buying the pin back and making yourself some pins. You can do this in stages, so first you buy the pre-made pins, then you make your own final pins!

Some are so excited to make their own pins that they rush to buy the finish product. Both options are valid ones!

The material should be strong enough to hold up under repeated pinning, and it must be reversible if needed. Many people find that doing a simple reverse knot works well enough for making a quick change of color or texture.

Many creators offer their pins as a set. These come in a pack, with all the pins connected together. You buy them individually, as desired.

Some examples of pins together are: How to Make a Pin, How to Make a Nail Polish Chip Pin, or How to Make a Nail Art Pin. All of these types of nails are the same concept: Add some material and design it!

If you want your pin to be stronger or want it to go anywhere else, then these types of nails are not for you. Instead, try one of the tips below that do not require decorations on other surfaces.

Create your design

Once you have your die, your template, and your soldering equipment, ready, it is time to make your pins!

Using a heat gun or iron, trace the outline of the die on the fabric and then gently pull away the excess fabric. Now, place the pin into the center of the fabric and press down slightly to draw a line.

Now that you have made your first pin! Now it is time to add some power. Add some spin to your pins by adding some force with your iron. When you hold the iron at a steady temperature and pressure, spin them out of your hands and onto a heat source.

Now that you have made some easy pins! Take one set of all different types of pins and make sure they are working correctly before taking another set out so that you do not break any connections.

Print it out

Bullet point
precedence is given to paper pinmaking techniques such as dip-hammering or burnishing, but these are not for ne, only if you have a machine or printer available.

If you do not have one of these, then try the next best thing: cut out a surprisingly accurate circle and trace it onto your enamel pin. Then carefully hammer the circle onto your pin using a die-cast metal tool.

Try both cutout and trace methods to get different styles of pins.

Make a backing for the pin

Before you start making your pins, you must have a shape to add to your pin. You can do either a square or a circle, the two are identical in shape.

To make the circle, trace an existing circle and then cut out the circle using a high-quality scissors. Then, wrap the circle in thread and then needle to create the pin!

How to make an enamel pin Deutsche isabelle müller | June 18, 2016 at 10:45 am as her her famous ceruleum ponchoPin is called. As her her online handle suggests, it is made from ceramic materials. Ceruleum is a soft metal that holds its shape well.

The process of making an enamel pin takes about thirty minutes per pin, but it can take longer if you are taking your time on them.

Mix your resin and pour it into the mold

Once the enamel pin is complete, you need to make the final details. These include adding a string, adding a tag, and adding some detail to the design.

To add detail, you must cut a small hole in the middle of the pin and then thread your decoration. Some popular ones are glue, scotch tape, and fabric. To glue the object onto the pin, use strong glue that will not break when pulled off.

To add some texture to your object, put some sand on top of the pin and let it dry before taking it out. Then wrap an elastic around it and pull tight.

To create more variety in your pins, add different materials or substances such as water soluble nail polish on one hand or silk powder on another.

Allow to dry then remove from mold

Once the enamel has dried, you can start working with them. You can either stamp images or designs on them or you can just let them sit and do their thing.

Either way, be careful not to overhandle the pins as it could cause them to break or bend. To remove a pin, you must carefully take off one side of the board then carefully pull off the pin.

This is due to the fact that when you push in the pin, it will come outwards and require further effort to remove. You can do this in stages- first one corner then next corner until they are all removed!

You can add more boards as your need them if you run out.
