The Antique Copper finish is a fresh take on a classic look. This carefully crafted design imbues the raw copper with an authentic rustic charm that resembles the seasoned appearance of an age old penny – perfect for those who want to add traditional beauty to any room.
Due to the hand-made nature of the product, there can be slight variation in color and pattern with each copper sheet. If you have a large project requiring several sheets of copper, we recommend that your order all of the copper sheets at the same time to minimize the differences from sheet to sheet.
Authentic, Naturally Aged Copper Sheets, Exotic Beauty. Our Copper is "REAL" and not painted or stained! It amazes us each time we see sheets of pure, lustrous, machined copper transformed. Magic!
|Thickness||Each patina copper sheet is .005" thick (36 gauge). A color copper patina sheet is very durable; it will not tear by hand, but can easily be cut with scissors or a new utility knife. If you take a foot-long sheet of aluminum foil and fold it five times, you will have an idea of how thick a copper sheet is.|
|Size||Our Antique Patina Copper Sheet - Light 36 Gauge comes in a standard 3 foot width and has varying lengths up to 12 feet.|
|Weight||One 3' x 4' copper sheet has a weight of almost 3 lbs.|
|Adhering||Color copper is easy to adhere to almost any surface using normal contact cement.|
|A one-time coat of lacquer is recommended to protect the copper for many years. We recommend purchasing our semi-gloss COPPERLAC lacquer. COPPERLAC is an air-dry lacquer, engineered to provide highly durable interior and exterior protection on color copper. For the highest level of protection for bar tops and countertops, we recommend a lacquer coating, followed by a self-leveling epoxy coating.|

Working with product couldn't have been easier. The videos on-line and just the right amount of thickness made this an excellent option to cover the damaged top of our Craigslist MCM buffet. The antique copper is beautiful and has excellent depth in color variation and will hide any minor issues with application :)

We wanted a different surround for the fireplace in our new home. We found the antique copper from ColorCopper.com and loved it. The material was easy to work with and loved doing the project. We have since been thinking of what other projects we could use the copper on.
