This week the chasing was finished and while I was putting the finishing touches on the dish I started to think about how I wanted to finish the dish.
BUT before I do that I should determine what the patina should be. In this case I do not think LOS will be enough, I want something that POPs. I have pondered a verdigris patina (i.e. Tiffany green as it is sometimes called) but if you don't know what that is, just look at the patina on the Statue of Liberty - that's the color we are talking about.
I like the green but the more I thought about it, I did not think it would be dramatic enough. Again from the workshop from David he discussed some of his patina's. And when I saw this picture, I knew it has to be THAT red.
[David was kind enough to let me take many pictures of his vessels. If you use the link above, you will see all the pictures I took]
I am now working on sample pieces of copper to learn how to get the red. Soon the Deco dish will be done and then I will have a few more process pictures to show you.
