acid patina, bronze, copper and iron finishes

Hey Dan, I like 2 the best, 1 second best, 3 third, but they all look good.

1-2-3 for me. 2 looks too pristine, 3 looks too aged and difficult to make out the details. To me, 1 strikes the perfect balance between looking aged but not too “clean”.

Jimi_C said exactly what I was thinking. 1 looks just rustic enough.

They all have appeal but I like the clarity of number 2. If it did not have printing I think number 1 would be my choice.

I REALLY like #2’s bronze look. It goes well with the style and resulting frame. I’ve actually almost contacted you about buying at least one of these.

3, 1, 2

3 & 1 are pretty close ties but I prefer 3 before 1.

Have your say...
