 These compositions on copper are created by exposing raw copper to a variety of natural elements, each with their own chemisty. The reaction between the copper, and in most cases, leaves, creates color through oxidation. The etched and verdigris images are brushed with urethane, mounted to a supporting wooden frame, and sealed with an epoxy resin finish, or with multiple coats of a copper laquer. Because the colors are natural verdigris, not pigment, they will not fade.
