"Flame painting" is a method of causing a piece of copper to change color through applying heat with a torch. Copper goes through a series of color changes when it is heated. Usually these follow the same order but environmental factors can affect the color results. The biggest changes come from changes in humidity; different colors on a rainy day as opposed to a dry sunny day. The metal worker uses a torch to "paint" patterns, lines or images on the surface of the metal using heat to create beautiful iridescent shades. The piece may be cooled or "quenched" then re-heated many times for the desired effect. A clear sealer insures the color will not change over time.
All plates are unique-no two will ever be exactly the same-but all are beautiful!
