This is a wonderful project to get lost in; measuring, cutting, filing, heating, folding, heating, bending, hammering, shaping, tumbling.... until you have a gorgeous work hardened piece of pure copper mimicking a leaf; a blank canvas for a rainbow of patinas to alter and further enhance the gleam of metal. This particular leaf measures almost 3" in length and is layered with a dark muted orange patina that is then distressed and sealed in professional metal lacquer.
You receive the exact leaf shown in the photos. Other colors are available separately in our shop.
This is a technique I learned from Charles Lewton-Brain.
