Love the copper and will be buying the others!I have been wanting copper post cap solar lights and they are just too pricey, I found a 2 pack of inexpensive solar lights, they were brown and we all know what happens to that plastic after baking in the Sun, then it occurred to me that I had the copper and I figured I'd try it on the lights, it covered beautifully in 2 coats. I wasn't sure if I had to seal them until now, but I used Krylon Maxx Clear Satin Spray Paint on them,and to my surprise, the spray instantly turned the copper a beautiful pinkish patina that happens naturally on copper. I will be doing this on my new deck lights before they are mounted, it is really beautiful!
