With this 3x3-inch 36 gauge verde patina copper sheet from Lillypilly you can design unique pieces to incorporate into jewelry designs with a fun earthy feel. This component is a copper square with one smooth, blank surface and another exposed to the patina process of corrosion. This detailed surface showcases a forest green and rust pattern that will bring your looks to another dimension full of texture. This sheet is made from a process similar to the natural aging process of copper and bronze, when chemicals produce new colors on the surface to protect the material from corrosion. Each sheet will vary in its appearance but all will show this lovely green and copper color combination, and is coated with a protective wax. A second layer of paste wax should be applied to protect the coloring. While you can cut these sheets with sturdy scissors, make sure these scissors are used for the sole purpose of cutting the sheets because they will lose their ability to cut paper.
