Thanks for the feedback. Dan, I have not tried any of these patina products yet. I would like to some day. This finish was achieved by applying layers of Golden Artist Acrylic washes.

The patina coating is fun to work with. Much less direct control then paint. It allows for a very realistic metal finish. The C grade bronze coating sets really hard and takes a high polish. It would look awesome on a piece like this one with the Tiffany green acid in the recesses. All of the coatings work well with a heat gun too. Give it a try someday. You will not regret it a bit.

This piece would also look great with 3/8” steel ball bearings epoxied into the recesses too … >grinz<

I use a Foredom rotary carver and an Auotomach reciprocating carver.

I’m intrigued by the organic shape and imperfect texture. It reminds me of the indentations that are left in the heart of an artichoke when you boil it and clean it.

And so we have another piece that proves that again, you are having waaay too much fun!

This is great, unusual, organic. Like some aquatic organism. The multicoloured patina gives it a glazed look.
I like it very much.
