About This File

Just polished up the old model with wire wool to reveal the copper surface then gave it a spray with tiffanys patina green, and left it for about an hour and got this, should look even more intense after 6hrs apparently.

went a bit too hard on the old sanding but its hard when you want the shine and only have a few micro meters of paint to play with and its my first attempt so i hope i get better. unless you make a cast or use a tougher coating (which im working on..) its gonna be hard to sand/buff/polish coatings of DIY metal paint. The exotic paints use hardener and catalysts so im pretty sure they'll work better/easier?

Still fun, and i love distressed looks so im happy that i don't need to make casts for everything. which would take up even more of my time.
