Autumn Copper Veneer

The name says it all. Vibrant orange, off-red, and other autumn colors appear to lift up from the surface in an array of whimiscal bubbles. The Autumn copper color is similar in pattern to Wine Red which is one of our favorites.

Available only with the lacquer finish option.

Free Shipping: We'll ship this product anywhere in the continental US for free!

pg-sample-copper.gifMore Information

If you've been looking for something truly unique for your next project, this is it! This artisanal copper veneer is offered in a durable and user-friendly 36 gauge (.005") thickness. But what do we mean by artisanal? It means that each veneer is hand made by man and not by machine. A skilled craftsman creates the patterns on each sheet and no two sheets are identical. Each is an amazing work of art in and of itself.

These gorgeous veneers are very easy to use. Though our copper will not tear, it can be cut with scissors or you can use a scroll saw with a bi-metal blade for intricate cuts. Then apply the copper to your project with solvent-based contact cement or water-based TC-20™.

The picture shown above is not the exact copper veneer that you will receive. Each copper sheet is custom made so there will be variations in color and pattern from one sheet to another. If you have a large project, be sure to order all of the copper together (in one order) to minimize the differences from sheet to sheet. We want you to be completely satisfied with your copper veneer so consider ordering a sample before you get started on your project.

 Copper Details
 Actual Size: Size is nominal. Actual width and length can vary by one-half inch.
 Thickness: .005" (36 gauge)
Our copper is almost twice as thick as the aluminum used to make a soda can or 7 times the thickness of aluminum foil.
Each veneer is carefully rolled around a cardboard tube, shrink-wrapped, covered with bubble wrap, and then placed in a durable box.
This is genuine copper. There are several companies offering painted or plastic "look alike" laminates which lack the depth, beauty, and originality of this real copper veneer. Each of our copper sheets are made to order by the artist and his exceptionally talented staff.
 Production Time:
Standard: 3 to 5 business days
Expedited: 1 business day ($45 per sheet)
Please contact us before ordering for expedited production.
 Transit Time:
The copper sheets are shipped from the artist in Kansas City, Kansas via FedEx. Transit time is typically between 1 and 4 days.

 Easy Application: Solvent based contact cement is available at most hardware stores and is sold under the name "Weldwood". Be sure to get the solvent-based type since water-based contact cement will not work.
 Best Application: Consider Better Bond TC-20™ for the most durable bond. This adhesive contains zero VOC's and no other adhesive bonds copper veneer better. Check the reviews on the TC-20 product page to see what others are saying.
 Cutting Copper: Though our copper will not tear, it can be cut with scissors or you can use a scroll saw with a bi-metal blade for intricate cuts.
 Safety: The copper sheets can have sharp edges. Wear protective gloves when handling this material.

 Finish Options:
The "wax" option creates a matte sheen. You can apply a coat of high quality paste wax to continue protecting your finished project.
The "lacquer" option brings out the best in the colors of the copper and is suitable for moderate-use areas. With the lacquer finish, you can further protect the copper using a poured-on epoxy finish. It's important to know that no lacquer-based finish will withstand exterior use.
Please note that some copper patina types do not have options for both finishes because of compatibility issues.
You can also opt for no finish to be applied to the copper so that you can apply a lacquer or epoxy finish in your shop. The color, depth, and character of a non-finished copper veneer will be significantly different than one that has a finish applied by the artist.
 Internat'l Orders:
Please contact us before ordering this product. We will work with you to arrange affordable international shipping.
 Return Policy:
The artist that makes this copper veneer and ships it direct to our customers charges a 15 to 25% restocking fee.

I bought several pieces of the top of copper veneer from Joe at It is the first and main place I go when buying copper veneers. The quality has always been outstanding, the packaging has always been good and the shipping speed has always been quick and responsive. Great product! - Jim Tobias

About Our Pictures
I was surprised to see so many online pictures of this same copper type where the colors were over-saturated and unrealistic. It's just too deceptive to sell a product this way. With the exception of Bamboo and Distressed patinas, the pictures shown on my site were taken by me and then color-corrected with software and a calibrated monitor. These pictures are not as vibrant as some of the others you may find around the internet but I wanted a genuine and honest representation.
