I’ve searched for this both here and google etc but can’t seem to understand what people are talking about.
Here’s the scenario: I’m going to turn a vase that I’d like to gild with gold and silver leaf. I’d also like to create a nice patina to blend it all together with color. How do I make the patina, apply it, etc. The leaf is the easy part but I’ve seen some beautiful pieces that had a chemical patina both here on LJ and elsewhere but the problem (for me) is that nobody seems to say HOW they make and apply the chemicals.
Confusing for a newbie. Any help/pointers/URLs/ideas?
