Three Copper Garden Markers:
Basil
CA Poppy
Green Zebra

made from the crumpled end of a copper pipe, these After the Meltdown Garden Markers are full of apocalyptic character, and have taken on quite the patina as I decided to store them out in the greenhouse, doing their job, marking some pots.

Markers are about 2" by 3 1/4", give or take a 1/4 inch.
the Letters are half inch tall,

Copper Garden Markers by Tim
ReCycled from old DWV copper pipe.

I hacksaw the pipe into random lengths & slit it with snips. After that I head over to the anvil with a hammer and pound the pipe flat. Next step is to get a fire going to anneal the copper for easier stamping.

After annealing, the strips are cut into smaller pieces, a hole is punched in one end, and I go crazy with letter punches.
its very relaxing hitting things with a hammer you know ;)

After Lettering, the pieces are pounded flat again, rough buffed with a wire wheel and thats about as much as I want to mess with it.

The rough wirebrushed finish weathers quickly to a nice patina. Or you could finish polish them and coat with clear for a shiny copper finish.


Everything here is ReCyCled from junk and perfection is not on the menu. Each marker is differant, even if I try to make them the same.

Custom Markers are just a convo away

the green gridwork in the background is half inch squares
