See my copper article

I have a copper article on basiccopper.com. Take a look. Made my long weekend - Cazmir Pulaski Day in my school district. Bonus!

Thanks for sharing your great article! I haven't touched metal in over a year, but your tips and photos made me want to haul out the old tools :-) Lovely work!

WOW! What a wonderful article! It has so many samples that really allow you to see how to use the pieces. I think blending the copper with the fabric is exciting. The website must be tickled copper (pun) to have this article. I need to try putting the copper through the die cut machine using an embossing die. What mil of copper would you suggest?

Belinda, I enjoyed your article. Are you using alcohol inks on some of the copper foil? It looked like you might have. I especially liked the earings with the hearts that dangle.
