I’ve been experimenting more and more with copper as a medium. I love to shine it up, texture it, hit it with a torch to see the unique colors that come out. Even better, copper gets the best patinas when exposed to ammonia or when you use a product such as Gilder’s Paste.
My most recent pieces have a unique combination of finishes, from the shiniest copper, to green and even lilac patinas.
I haven’t even started on the wonderful finishes you can get with enamels. My friend, Dawn Piero, does some amazing work with enamels. I love her style.
