Patina Image Description
Antique copper-antique-s.jpg

Charming, elegant, and understated. This copper patina contains a gentle and eye-pleasing gradient between each of the warm brown tones. It is the classic of classics.



Azul is undeniably gorgeous. Rich blue and turquoise dominate over shades of light brown in a burl-like pattern. You can't go wrong with this one.


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 clouds or bubbles.

Bamboo copper-bamboo-s.jpg

Bamboo has a very sharp and eye-catching appearance. Robust dark brown lines chatter throughout the sheet. It has the potential to become the focus of your project.

Bamboo Forest copper-bamboo-forest-s.jpg

This is a sharp and distinctive combination of the Bamboo and Distressed patina options. The look is aggressive and demands a bold project where the patterns can thrive.


Distressed is an outstanding copper veneer with a dark field covered in nearly-black "particles" of color. A sure favorite among craftsman style builders.

Enchantment copper-enchantment-s.jpg

Enchantment is one of the more visually dramatic designs. Shades of brown and black cascade from end to end displaying a waterfall-like effect that has to be seen to be believed.

Free-Form Circle* copper-freeform-circle-s.jpg

Here is another hand-made copper sheet. This copper has no patina. The pattern is made by abrading the copper surface in a circular pattern.

Free-Form Random* copper-freeform-random-s.jpg

This copper has no patina. The pattern is made by abrading the copper surface just like the one above. The only difference is the direction of the abrasion which is more random.

Flamed copper-flame-s.jpg

Flamed stands out from the rest. Circular designs in a bubbly pattern appear to rise through the copper surface. Soft and gentle in appearance, Flamed is sure to delight.

Golden Bamboo copper-golden-bamboo-s.jpg

Golden Bamboo is subtle yet inviting and warm. Dark chocolate markings lay on translucent clouds in a golden background. This new color is sure to add dimension to any project.

Irish Moss copper-irish-moss-s.jpg

There is something unique about the green and black patina on this copper. In different lights, the colors seem to fade in and out ranging from gentle pale green to a rich and dark emerald.

Leopard copper-leopard-s.jpg

Not unlike Irish Moss and Mystic Topaz this patina has the explosive arrangement of molten contrasting colors on a warm amber background. This is truly a must-see copper patina.

Mottled copper-mottled-s.jpg

Mottled is amazing. Each sheet is draped in stunning brown and black colors in a varying array of mesmerizing patterns. The patina on this copper is simply breath-taking.

Mystic Topaz

This patina is destined to be a classic. Brilliant turquoise pebbles float on a field of black and brown. This is our new favorite copper!

Tarnish copper-tarnish-s.jpg

This is one of the more subdued of the copper veneers. It is simple and understated with the warm orange glow of aged copper. A uniquely vintage appearance.

Red Wine

Red Wine is simply dazzling. This new patina style is the most striking and alluring copper we've ever seen. The pattern of metallic red bubbles is almost three dimensional.

Rojo copper-rojo-s.jpg

Rojo shows off the classic copper patina colors. Layers of turquoise and sea green colors cover a background of rich browns. This is the epitome of patinated copper sheeting.

Rojo Negro

Rojo Negro holds nothing back. Molten red, orange, and occasional black colors flow around the sheets in wild variation. Outstanding in every way.

Sand Storm copper-sandstorm-s.jpg

This copper has a less dramatic variation in color but a wild and aggressive patina pattern. It's an ideal copper for those who like the Zebra copper patina but want something a bit less dramatic.

Stellar copper-stellar-new-s.jpg

Even the name is indicative of the amazing array of color and depth in these sheets. Never before has such an active display of radiance been found in copper veneer.


Sunburst is a real crowd pleaser. Seemingly explosive black "bursts" in a mesmerising field of copper oranges and reds create a unique and engaging visual texture.

Verde copper-verde-s.jpg

Verde is the quintessential copper veneer. The classic copper brown field is camouflaged by intense greens in a burl-like pattern that must be seen to be believed.

Wild Fire

Wild indeed! This patina has a variety of vibrant orange and red colors that rise up from and over a surface of black and dark brown colors.

Zebra copper-zebra1-s.jpg

A perfect blend of bronze and black colors can be found in the Zebra copper veneer. Gorgeous casts of dark brown and black flow along the sheet creating a primitive yet purposeful design.


Additional Information
pg-copper-veneering-easy.jpgBecause each copper sheet is custom made, 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. Because we want you to be completely satisfied with your copper veneer, we highly recommend ordering a sample first.

Small wrinkles in the copper veneer are normal and can be easily removed with a wood roller.

Recommended Accessories

  • Better Bond TC-20: Considered by most users to be the ultimate copper adhesive, TC-20 bonds copper to most porous substrates.
  • Wood Roller: This tool is used to remove wrinkles that can occur when the copper veneer sheet is handled.
  • J-Roller: A must-have item used to apply pressure when the copper is adhered with solvent-based contact cement.
  • Copper Veneering Kit: This top-selling combo package includes the basics you'll need to get started in copper veneering.

Can I order this size of the copper veneer without the top coat finish applied?
This size of the copper is one that I stock in my shop. I don't stock the non-finished type because very few people have wanted it that way. The copper artist doesn't offer the 24x18 as a special order item. The smallest that he will make without the finish is 36x48.

What finish is applied to this size of this size of the copper?
Each patina type is different. The artist applies the finish type that he feels will bring out the best color in the sheet.

Product Reviews

  1. Unique Product - Easy to Use

    Review by Mike Dyer

    I used this product in 2 ways. I made small relief panels to mount on cabinet doors and in a new room I made wall hanging/artwork (12x24) by veneering to 1/4" MDF and building a frame. Lots of comments on it as many people don't know how it was made.

    Selection is great

  2. Review from Ottawa, ON

    Review by Stephen Klump

    This product is strikingly beautiful. The on-line pictures can't show the way it subtly reflects light. Wow!

  3. Review from Eureka, CA

    Review by Gabe Douge

    I had to laminate some of this copper veneer to a guitar I was making & it came out great. I used the TC-20 adhesive & everything worked great. I'm like a kid in a candy store when I come to this site. I'd like one of everything.

  4. Review from Gloucestershire UK

    Review by B Igoe

    Stunning veneers delivered very quickly (within a week). I am in the UK and even other local deliveries don't arrive this promptly. This is a great company to deal with and highly recommended.

  5. Review from Livonia, MI

    Review by Jerry Potestivo

    Product arrived in great time. I can't tell you how impressed we are with this veneer. Better than described, picture doesn't do it justice. We take pride in producing the finest product using only the best materials and I can say your product is absolutely first rate, I will not hesitate to order again. Thank You

  6. Review from Lexington, SC

    Review by Howard Smith

    I used theses on an MDF backer for raised panel cabinet doors and drawers. Wow, they turned out great. I used a clear laquer finish over it and I couldn't be happier. I was concerned about the high gloss finish over the copper compared to the satin polyurethane finish I use on cabinets but it was not overbearing at all. Highly recommended.
