Natural Copper Patina

We start with cutting of the copper shapes out of a larger piece of sheet copper. Copper gets shaped and molded, sanded and cleaned carefully. The pieces are then made into finished product either with flame patina, or other types of patina, such as naturally fumed blue green patina (verdigris).

WHAT IS NATURAL PATINA

Copper takes on patina beautifully in the nature when it is exposed to the elements of rain and moisture. This natural process can be accelerated by using all natural “exposing” methods, with the help of household ingredients, usually vinegar/ammonia and salt. This process can take anywhere from a couple of days to a week. Copper is rinsed and let dry and finally coated with a clear coat to seal in the patina. It is a method to create beautiful natural artistic jewelry.
