Patina Basics…

is the title of Tim McCreight’s latest DVD.  It just arrived in my latest order from Cooltools.us and I can’t wait to watch it!  Most jewelry artists know about coloring metal with liver of sulfur.  However, this DVD shows a wealth of other techniques for adding additional surface colors.  Many formulas are concocted from typical household chemicals like ammonia and vinegar.   I’ve dabbled with various techniques in a weekend workshop years ago and have forgotten much of what I learned.  Use it or lose it!  With this “refresher course”, it will be fun to try new formulas and play with color enhancement on the metal surfaces of my designs!
