|©2016 Barry Smith - A sheaf of patinated copper leaves|
I'm made 27 leaf forms in all - about 50mm wide and 180mm-200mm long. All leaves were patinated and coated in an acid free gloss art coating was after a further grind and polish of the edges to stop the patination process and the associated patina dust as they the leaves are to go on display inside.
