S-T-R-E-T-C-H: Experiments with Copper Washers

LCarson Rolled Copper-1

A total experiment the other night in a metal class I’m taking. Wanted to see what would happen if I put cheap copper washers through the rolling mill…Surprise!

LCox Copper with Heat Patina

These examples were run through about three times. One set was hammered, then hit with a torch to heat patina. The other set had a piece of netting laid on top for the last run through the rolling mil. Love how long and uniform these pieces are and think they’ll make great pendants or earrings.
