Tip 6: Etched brass filigree
It is the same technique used for dragonfly wings of famous Tiffany dragonfly lamps. You can buy brass filigrees from your local stained glass supply shop. I make filigrees with my own designs. I used to make them with a do-it-youself print-circuit kit which I could purchase from an electric shop (like RADIOSHACK) several years ago. The kit uses acid to cut out designs from brass sheets (0.3mm in my case). I do not know if you can get them these days. I have not seen them for a while now.
