The At Home Patina


So a client recently showed me his very first attempt at patina which I must say was quite impressive. His goal was not to look like a 5 year old had done it, and I have to say that what came out looks better than many of what the so-called patina artists produce. (Not ones that I show on the blog, but the countless others) Nicknaming it the ‘Tortoise’ look, I have to say that I think that it is brilliant and I would wear something with this patina on it. And from the first pictures you would not have thought that it would have come out so well. Nice to be proven wrong! Well done the to the gentleman that made this and let’s see some of you out there give it a go too!

Happy weekend to all!
