plating, anodizing, & finishing Q&As since 1989
Q. I am looking for a copper finish called the butterfly. I saw it on a web page now I can't find it. It looked like small circles. Does any one know where I could find this or how to do it myself. Also what is the best coating to protect copper from discoloring. I plan to use it as a backsplash in my kitchen.
Thanks for any help.

How to attach copper sheet to dining room table2003
Q. I have a dining room table that I want to attach a thin piece of copper sheeting to. I need to know where to get the copper and how to put it on . I would like the name of a Michigan distributor.

A. Revere copper makes a line of copper sheeting with imprinted patterns for design use called the Liberty collection that would work. They have a website. One distributor is Frigo Design.Phillip J [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]

I would use contact cement to adhere the copper to your table. You can get 5 mil (36 gauge) copper sheets and cut them easily with scissors or a utility knife. A base coat of Lacquer followed by a flood coat of epoxy will give you a beautiful look and great protection for many years. Hope that helps.
