Hearts and more hearts

Got caught up with hearts again today.  I was just going to cut out a few and they seem to take off on their own accord. The big ones are about 1 1/2" wide.
Lots of fun and will find a way to attach them to cards for DS Watkins First Thursday but I have that nagging -didn't get anything done- feeling.  Too many projects  in-process, I guess.  S'pect I best see some completions this coming week.

For you locals, the "flame" is from some of King Derricks cutting scraps.

What are your materials that you're using? These are amazing.

Thanks, Lara. Copper, brass rivets, found flotsam. The wonderful reds come from heating the copper with a torch to red hot then immediately dowsing in boiling water. (makes a great rumble tumble sound then a phfissst!) You can get a range from soft peach to deep burgundy depending on how hot you take it. And the color holds well.

...and I often prefer the color of the side opposite of where I applied the heat.

Such wonderful creativity! I would love to see more of your copper art sometime soon.

Holly Ka-molly, these are great!

I will have to try this out myself. I haven't done much with patinas, so any tips and hints are very welcome. I LOVE copper and brass combined with silver. Still figuring out the whole riveting thing.

These and the jigsaw hearts are wonderful. I love the colored effect you get and how it changes across the subtle convex shapes...

Thanks for sharing how you achieve the color. For us non-metal workers, the whole process is a mystery. These are going to make some great cards and I love how you named each one. Just beautiful.
