I came across a material in one of my drawers and am sending you some to see what you come up with. It is copper tooling foil. I am pretty sure I have seen it in your work before, but I have never used it. My idea is to patina it and then create a transfer print on it. Not sure if it will work, but I am going to give it try.
I am doing a practice run on the patina technique. I have already accidentally skipped a step so will most likely have to start all over, but thought I would move ahead anyway to see what happens. You are supposed to sand and soak the metal in salty water first (totally didn’t do) and then do this step…
From here you are supposed to submerge the copper in this vinegar mash for 24 hours, then take it out and let air dry for a few days. Here is what mine looked like after I took it out….
I am looking forward to hearing what you think of this material and if you might be able to use it in your work.
