Antique Finish Etched Anticlastic Copper Cuff
Individually handcrafted patterned anticlastic copper cuff bracelet with antique patina.
I cut Copper blank for this cuff from sheet copper. I added a scratched lines pattern to it and put it into a Ferric Chloride solution to etch the pattern. The image below shows this and some other cuffs ready for the etching treatment.
After etching I cleaned the black gunky resist off the copper sheet. The shaped the copper piece as an anticlastic cuff and gave it an antique finish using Liver of Sulphur.
According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary Definition of anticlastic: having opposite curvatures at a given point. If you hammer a flat sheet of metal so that it forms two near identical upward curves in opposite ways you have made an AntiClastic shape.
This Copper cuff is a standard fit at approximately 6 inches, Width 2.1 cm.
