Copper bandaid

Becky Stern sez, "I'm taking an introductory metalworking class, and for our first sample project I made this copper band-aid. I formed the strip on a hydraulic press (read: car jack in a steel frame) sandwiched between layers of acrylic (bottom) and flexible urethane (top). The pad is textured by running it through a roller against some window screen, then I applied a water-based white patina. The overall texture of the strip is hammered and buffed. It's about seven inches long. I'm excited to learn more about metalworking."
