As you can see in the pictures below, there is quite a bit of difference between the newly applied patina and the aged patina. You can actually see it change colors. The first picture was taken a couple hours after the patina was applied. I let it sit in the sun Saturday afternoon and didn’t bring it in until today. The middle picture was taken late this afternoon. I lightly sprayed water on it and some of the patina flaked off. That is okay because my wife wanted some of the copper to show through anyway. The bottom picture is with the first coat of permalac. The colors are fairly accurate in all these photos. I was shooting for an aquarium look and really like the way it turned out.

Quite unique. I’d love to see the finished product.

Hey, did I spy a mermaid in the corner there??? Why do I hear “Under the Sea” sining in my head (board)?

Thanks all. gagewestern… yes. On this project the copper sheet will be laminated to 1/2” plywood. The gate panels were laminated to 1/4” Luan ply.
