Hot patina techniques for copper countertop
Hello there, I have my heart set on a copper countertop for new house, and want to do the patina-ing myself (well, me and the contractor). Have seen fantastic range of patina products by Sculpt Nouveau. But I am attracted by the reddish finishes, which invariably involve heat.
Can anyone tell me how one goes about this in the context of a large sheet of copper (16oz), if it is at all feasible? First, how would you prop up the sheet in order to apply the heat? Second, I presume it would warp - would we be able to flatten it again, or would it even matter for glueing it afterwards to the countertop?
Thank you kindly!
