#204 In the foundry: "Buffalo ReliefIII & IV" patina . . .

I've used one of my favorite patinas on the Buffalo Relief III and IV which were designed to be displayed as mantlepieces.  I've used an earth-tone patina that works well on an active and rugged surface.  The opaque 
application of the cupric nitrate and ferric nitrate, stippled over liver of sulfur, impart a warm, stone-like quality.
