This 3x3-inch, 36 gauge, verde raised flower embossed patina copper sheet from Lillypilly is a fun new way to create jewelry components for your designs. The thin, square sheet of copper is imprinted with large flower shapes to bring texture to any look. Though one side maintains the original warm, copper shine, the other side of this sheet has been treated with a verde patina pattern, resulting in a teal green design muddled along the surface. 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. 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.
