I am looking for different 'recipes' for doing patinas on my wire sculptures. As of right now the only one I have found is for a rust look:
16 oz. Hydrogen Peroxide
2 oz. Vinegar
1/2 tbsp. Salt
I am interested in all kinds of finishes. A simple look that i want to figure out is metal with black in the recesses.
Most the wire I work with is Galvinized Steel.
Thanks in advance for any ideas!
I found a great article with recipes for Japanese patinas: http://www.ganoksin.com/borisat/nenam/japanese-patinas-
They talk about copper or stainless steel objects but I think one can experiment.
that is a neat link thanks!
I found a pretty neat magazine at my local independent book store. It is called 'Easy Wire'. Great magazine for metal wire jewelry. I was noticing that 'liver-of-sulfur' was mentioned a lot. I have seen it mentioned for antiquing silver and copper wire. Here is a video i found on using liver-of-sulfur.
HI DUENEDESIGN. look at this site www.jpennyltd.co.uk
I suppose you refer to the patination products they have.
I'm sure it would.
