my Oceanus doorknocker: Before & After

image n° 1: the original was black when I bought it.
First step in chemical verdigris
is 3 layers of bronze (2 days to cure)
-If You look close enough at the middle left of the image, You can see white paint from my Bugatti male stock on the canvas
(aren't You just thrilled out of your skin to know that ! grin)

image n° 2: 4 layers cobalt patina of
ammonium chloride & copper sulfate.

-Aztec gold powder | cobalt powder to intensify the verdigris
-ultra florescent lighting used for photograph
-1 week later the Oceanus doorknocker was hung on my door.

image n° 3: same description as n° 2, except no ultra lighting for alt look.
