Fine art, Flexible art, Fashionable art, Fabulous art, Functional art and Fun art... 
...are some few thoughts that come to mind.

FaPaint is my own formula of acrylic polymer emulsions composed. The FaCuff is made entirely out of FaPaint. Whereas the Metal FaCuff is composed of two fundamental ingredients FaPaint on a copper core.

The FaCuff is a wristband composed entirely out of my own formula of polymers, I call FaPaint.

The FaCuff is a paint only cuff or wristband, that does best when worn all the time and in warm climates. The Metal FaCuff is The FaCuff on copper; in essence it is a fancier sturdier version of The FaCuff and consists of two main components copper and FaPaint. Some Metal Facuffs are also embellished with tiny marbles, precious and semi-precious stones, along with different types of gold and silver. The Metal FaCuff is not stretchable, however you can mold your cuff into any size and shape you like.

I apply the FaPaint onto a flat sheet of copper, create my designs, then forge the Metal FaCuff into (a cuff) shape.

No, I don't have a patent on my formula. I think it would be awesome if my art can inspire others. Plus, my polymer wouldn't exist without Golden Paints. There's art in everything, and there is enough for everyone. That being said, I have copyrights and registrations on images and words. Let's pretend there's a FaCuff® and an AvaAustinStudios© on each and every page... Sheesh

No, a torn FaCuff is not repairable. You tore your FaCuff because you didn't follow the directions. You over stretched it and/or you didn't warm it up before you stretched it.

 

Each piece is hand-crafted and therefore intricate in design. Please use appropriate care to enjoy and preserve your Copper FaCuff. I recommend putting your jewelry on last, after you've applied, lotions, perfumes, hair sprays, and all other cosmetics. Do not wear your Copper FaCuff to bed while you sleep. Please avoid direct contact with salt water, excessive perspiration, and chemicals such as chlorine or sulfur. Submerging your Copper FaCuff to excessive water will cause the paint seal to delaminate or peel off. On the plus side you can always go deep sea diving with your all paint FaCuff.
