Interesting Patina sample on copper pennies-- but we could do some kind of painting incorporating this idea.
A sample board shows the variety of colors pennies can turn. Older pennies are better suited for decorating if you’re after patina. Between 1962 and 1982 pennies were almost pure copper. Since then, they have been made with a zinc core and thin plating of copper on the outside. For a natural patina, leave them outside in the weather for a month, or continually wet and let dry until they have turned the desired color.
DIY How to rush the patina of copper pennies for penny floor and table top designs. Color change - 1/4 c white vinegar, 1 tsp salt, A clear, shallow bowl (not metal), Paper Towels. Mix salt & vinegar in bowl. Stir til salt dissolves. Add pennies. After 5 min, take out half of pennies; Put on paper towel. Remove rest of pennies. Rinse them really well under running water & put on a paper towel. In about 1 hour rinsed pennies will look shiny and unwashed pennies will be coated with a blue-green compound called malachite.

I love this idea, partly because I love pennies and partly because I just love this piece of art by Rachel Denny. She has a great name too, right? :-)
Rachel Denny is an artist who is best known for her “Domestic Trophies” work – faux deer heads covered in cable knit sweaters. She created this penny covered horse head, entitled War Horse, this year, and it is an amazing piece.
