Heating metal until it glows is a favorite past time of mine. The fire itself leaves color on the copper and anneals it. This makes it ready to fold and reshape. I love the shapes and textures that the hammers create. Now for the final finish, Vintaj has created metal paints whose colors mimic patina effects on metal. I have spared myself the chemical solutions and used this paint for some great effects. I hope that you like them too.
