Verdigris Copper Patina

Lately I’m fascinated with the process of creating a blue, verdigris patina on copper.  The end result is always a surprise, never to be repeated again, that requires experimentation to achieve.

I’m especially fond of the contrast between the aged, rustic finish and modern, geometric shapes.  Add sterling silver to the mix, and it’s a winning combination.

There are various “formulas” that can be used to create a range of colors, so I’ll likely experiment with those in time.

Endless possibilities.
