The ‘Old Rust’ Patina

My patina man, Kike, working the color on, “With My Books Battalioned Around Me”. This one is shipping out to Settlers West, in Tucson, for an art show next week. 
The color on this sculpture is very unique. We take nitric acid and put it over iron nails, to dissolve them. We them apply that mixture with heat to the sculpture. The iron mixture binds to the bronze. We call it “The Old Rust” patina.
