Patina Inspiration – Where it Comes From?

This is one of my favorite patinas of the year and in general, that I have ever seen. I absolutely love the colors in it. I cant say for sure if I would wear them personally but I do love the look of them and more importantly how the patina artist, Chris Gunsolley of Waxed and Dyed (of Australia), gained his inspiration behind the coloring of them.

I cant imagine what its like to be a good patina artist. A lot of thought and patience must go into the whole process, especially the blending of colors that if mixed poorly create very strong, other colors. Chris used that to his advantage here when he blended from yellow to blue with the green in between. Making the transition not so risky as it was his intention, and thus coming out beautifully, as his inspiration called for.

Well done Chris for something so unique and amazing

And a great weekend to all!
