Finishing sculpture commission

Applying black patina.

I got this flat black patina from
Sculpt Nouveau
PO Box 460459
Escondido, CA 92046

They were really helpful and I highly recommend using them. I have been working with patinas on bronze for many years now, but patinas on steel are a whole different thing - mostly because steel rusts.

The commission is for a loft space indoors and the black works really well with white or light colored walls. Outdoors black and other dark colors just disappear.
