COPPER LAMINATED TO WOOD.....NOT SOLID COPPER
The first step is bonding a thin sheet of heat treated copper to 1/8" thick birch plywood. Detailed designs, most including inlays, are then cut by hand using the tiny blades of a scroll saw. The various pieces are separated, and portions of the design are patinaed, to create an aged/mineralized effect. After the acid treating is complete, the inlays are re-installed; then the entire piece, including the back and edges, is sprayed with multiple coats of clear lacquer or polyurethane. This locks in the colors of both the heat treated and patinaed copper.
ACTUAL PHOTOS.....NOT STOCK PHOTOS
The two photos show the front and back of the actual plaque you will receive. Because CopperCutts are created with natural processes, the colors and textures will be different for each individual piece. If you need more than one, or have a color or direction preference, let me know...we can set up a custom order.
FINISHED FOR INSIDE.....NOT OUTSIDE...USE
Display these plaques individually as accent pieces in your home or office, or combine them with other decorative accessories, such as baskets or dried flowers, to create a stunning Southwestern wall or room. Because they are so lightweight, small pins, nails, or velcro dots all work well for hanging...no need to find a wall stud! A "How Do I Hang This?" insert is packed with each piece. They are not recommended for exterior use, but can be displayed in protected (from direct sun and rain) outdoor locations, like under a porch.
