Do you not put any coating on the copper side at least?
I wondered about the copper tarnishing especially if it gets wet.
Thank you Alex. If you don’t want to get any color on your fingers, then you will need to coat the copper with a layer that keeps you away from direct contact with the metal.
You are correct, Copper will tarnish over time and it can turn your skin green. You can use a coating like Protecta Clear, or even apply a layer of clear two part epoxy and then sand/buff/polish when it cures.
I don’t get a lot of hand sweat going under normal circumstances, so I don’t notice the green issue as much.
Thank you again, and happy building.
