Crusty Copper Creations

This is the copper wire that has the green patina. It was a bit goobery so I rinsed off one of the pieces before adding a clear coat. I think I let them sit too long, thus the excess boogery green. After letting it dry I sprayed a clear coat to keep the green patina from wearing off. It was so much fun playing chemist with the copper wire. I found some of the instructions from the website. I'm thinking a mermaid necklace with aged green copper wire, awesome charms from PatinaQueen and seed beads would be divine! Happy Mothers Day!
