Notes:

  • How to Patina:  Use in a well ventilated area according to the precautions on the ammonia packaging.  Prepare patina solution using 1 part water to 2 part ammonia.  Add kosher salt to mix.  Lay metal onto a rising form to lift above the solution.  Cover tightly.  The fumes from the ammonia will create a blue patina.  Check back often. Remove and rinse when desired effect is achieved. Blot dry.

 

Instructions:
Project Dimensions: Varies depending on how you assemble them.  Approximately 1” to 2”

  1. Place copper sheet inside M-bossabilities folder.  Sandwich between base plate and raspberry plate.  Pass through the Artisan X-plorer™ machine.
     
  2. Add to patina solution if desired – see above recipe.
     
  3. Cut two rectangles from copper using the #2 rectangle (with #1 being the smallest) in the Rectangles One template collection .
     
  4. Remove from template and file edges smooth.
     
  5. Punch a hole in the center top of rectangle.
