My idea about how to show off what I can do with copper patina will be on diplayed at Las Vegas Artist Gallery next week. Copper is quite soft metal to work with and the patina can be from a deep purple, bark blue to a turquois. The piece that goes in to the book is made from hammer copper, this helps harden it so it’s harder to bend. The feather has been pressed and hammered in to shape but still can be bent. My artist side of me likes a feather to act like a feather, light and delicite. So please treat the feather as a feather made out copper by a artist. The entire piece has been laquered to seal the color.
Thank you Terry Pratchett I used a portion of your book Wee Free Men.
Copper Bookmark Feather with Patina The bookmarks is about 4″. I made part that goes in the book by hammering copper and will stand up being in books. The feather is from thinner copper. If you are where the feather can crushed put the whole bookmark inside the book. A laquer finnsh has been aplyed to the bookmark to seal the copper patina.
