I shipped six of these copper wall art weavings to Denver, in January, for installation in the hospitality area of a hospital. All the copper wall art weavings were sized 10″ x 14″ and mounted on black-painted 1/8″ aluminum boards, sized 14″ x 18″. They were all to be the same general design, but each one different in the details. The coloring was achieved with a flame patina technique.
It’s worthwhile to consider all the steps involved and how long this process takes. Many steps, each necessary to achieve the end result.
This stair-step aluminum wall sculpture was recently shipped to Creative Metal Products in San Jose, CA. The owner was a great pleasure to work with. Here’s what he wrote: “We received the sculpture safely and it looks perfect! Attached is a picture file of the sculpture in our office. It’s been a fun experience in that the piece is just right in all respects, and you’ve been good to work with.
Shipping a 48″ circle spiral copper weaving tomorrow or Monday. This copper weaving has a very lovely flame-colored patina, sealed with Incralac. The flame colors are always very beautiful before being lacquered, especially the blues and violets, but after lacquering about 50% of the colors disappear – they are too transparent. Incralac hides the beautiful colors the least of all the lacquers I’ve tried. Incralac takes a few days to dry fully – the more it dries, the more beautiful the colors remaining.
