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


I've used one of my favorite patinas on the Buffalo Fragments III & 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.
