  • Etched American Flag Copper Spartan Helmet Pendant

    Here is a handmade copper spartan helmet . The stripes are hand drawn on 16 gauge copper sheet and then etched in copper sulfate for 2 1/2 hours, after the etching i draw the outline of the helmet on the flag and cut it using a jewelers saw. I use liver of sulfur to patina the copper to give it an antiqued look and finish with several coats of permalac.
