#398 At the foundry: Patina, the power of color, con't . . .

Please start this series about patina with post #391, Feb. 13

Below, is a new sculpture entitled Branching Out.  
The patina was achieved by heating the bronze with a propane torch and sizzling on cupric nitrate. 
 Next, ferric nitrate was stippled while the bronze was still hot.  I routinely use this classic, simple patina. 
Note, the cupric nitrate that remains in the negatives.
