Texture and color come together for you to play with from Lillypilly. This 3x3-inch, 36 gauge mottled dot embossed patina copper sheet is a great new way to design with mixed media components. This thin sheet is imprinted with textured dots, ranging in size, across its surface. One side maintains its shiny copper color while the other is detailed with a lovely patina procedure. The patina process is a natural aging procedure where chemicals, fire and earth components create a colored seal on the copper to protect it from further corrosion. The result of this mottled patina pattern is a dark film seeping across the surface. Each sheet will vary in its appearance 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.
