Create cool new ideas with this Lillypilly 3x3-inch 36 gauge mottled ripple embossed patina copper sheet. This thin, square sheet features a fun texture imprint pattern that replicate ripples in the water, creating more dimension in the surface. While one side shines with a plain copper color, the other is treated with a mottled patina process. 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 resulting image from this mottled patina pattern is a dark muddled color 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.
