Oxidizing Copper Wire

I am working with  a millinery artist who is crafting a new collection of hats from antiqued copper wire. Because her specialty is fabrics, I have had the opportunity to explain some metal working to her and offered to type some stepped out instructions for her to use in the future.

Would you like to have a copy? I have uploaded it to scribd where you can safely download it to your computer;  Oxidizing Copper Wire.   

Super easy and cheaper then buying it!


  1. Wow, that would be great - unfortunately the links says "Not found - error". Could it be wrong?

  2. I think sharing your knowledge with others is also why YOU ROCK!


  3. Thanks for the thought, I don't use copper much but am interested in reading about it; however, I'm presently getting a 404 Not Found error when clicking the link ...

  4. Shannon that is a great Article you wrote and it is much appreciated by so many. Thank you!

  5. I just tried downloading this and get an error message:

    We're sorry, but something went wrong... ouch
    We've been notified about this issue and we'll take a look at it shortly.

    I'll try it later.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge!

  6. Thanks so much, Shannon, for sharing this! I keep reading HOW to do it, but I'm just too chicken to give it a try yet! :oP I figure if I download your instructions, when I finally build up the courage, I'll know exactly where to go for the info! Thanks! Alesha

  7. Great tute Shannon! I like that you recommended the permalac. Never heard of it. Will seek it out! Enjoy the day! Erin

  8. Very cool! I'll have to check out the tutorial.

    Did you know Coco Chanel started out by making hats?

  9. It worked! Thank you so much for such a generous and wonderful tutorial. I'm going to give it a try very soon! Yay!


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my blog, it means a lot to me.
