Why I love COPPER

I love copper. Easy to hammer and easy to patina. Yes, it may turn your skin blue/green but Renaissance wax or other sealants will solve this problem. Copper is inexpensive.

A green way to patina copper is a warm hard cooked egg and copper piece in the zip lock bag (the patination process will take some time).

Here are some of my copper pieces.

I do not get tired of working with copper.
