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.
Fish Scale* copper-fish-scale-s.jpg This "Engine Turning" pattern is hand-made with simple tooling. This copper has no patina. The intriguing pattern is made by abrading the copper surface. Perfect for garages spaces!
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!
Red Wine copper-red-wine-s.jpg 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 copper-sunburst-s.jpg 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.
Vertical Squiggle* copper-vert-squiggle-s.jpg This pattern is hand-made with simple tooling and has no patina. The pattern is made by abrading the copper in an undulation fashion that creates a three dimensional appearance.
Wild Fire copper-wildfire-s.jpg 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.

Finish Options:

The "wax" option creates a matte sheen. With this option, the patina is permanent and will not rub off. 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.

Some copper patina types do not have options for both finishes because of compatibility issues.

*** You can opt for no finish to be applied to the copper so that you can apply a 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.

Return Policy:
The artist that makes this copper veneer and ships it direct to our customers charges a 15 to 25% restocking fee.

Product Reviews

  1. Good Stuff!!

    Review by Keith Larrett

    The copper veneer was well packaged and arrived in good condition. It is beautiful!! It was a lot easier to work with than expected although care must be taken not to bend it or scratch it. The TC 20 adhesive worked well and the copper cut cleanly with a router bit after lamination. I plan on getting more for some other projects.

  2. Review from Palmyra, Virginia

    Review by Douglas Michon

    We used this to laminate our two subwoofers so they don't look like two giant boxes. They look fantastic since the copper is beautiful. If you follow Joe's advice, the TC-20 glue works great and smells faintly like Elmer's glue. I've never laminated before, but it seems like the copper is easier to work with than wood laminate. It's easier, faster and far less messy to cut nice, straight edges with a gentle sawing motion with a utility knife rather than with a flush trim bit on a router. We don't have a vacuum press, so we used a large piece of open cell foam, topped with a weighted board to glue the laminate to the substrate.
