Blue Patina Tests

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Blue Patina Tests

Hi folks,

 

I've been incredibly busy at work lately but had some ammonia and salt handy to try my hand at some blue patina fun. The problem i had was that these were 5 minute plates and the copper plate was so thin when i added the patina it ate right through even after sealing it! The They Live one was a thick one but i over did it, ill need to sand it back down. blue patinas are much tougher than green ones!

 

usual ghetto photo setup.....

No. The blue is the salt. There is no paint or masking work here. Just nature at work after 5 hours. Need to try it again almost had what i wanted! But the original plate was too thin.
