Fun with Black Patina
Boy, oh boy, is this stuff FUN to work with! Although, now that I'm looking at it all, I guess you have to be into ruining shiny stuff to truly appreciate the effect. You have to be careful with this product as it is very toxic. I wore rubber gloves and safety glasses while applying the Black Patina. And no double-dipping. Once a Q-tip has been dipped into the nitric acid and used to age a piece, no dipping it in the bottle again or the entire thing will be neutralized. I've included some untreated pieces in the photos to show you how dramatic the difference is.
