Almost done. Everything's soldered at this point. Now I'm going to be experimenting with different patinas. My teacher suggested letting the copper patina oxidize to give it an antique look. If that doesn't work I'll probably change it to black.

I'm not going to say that I'm going to post anything soon, that never seems to work. It will be updated when it's updated.

Assassin's Creed belongs to Ubisoft.

I've never liked how my copper patinas have turned out. If you don't clean the piece well before you put on black, it makes it look weird and aged (which i like). Nice design!

Yeah, I'm not too thrilled with the copper either. I wanted to see what it'd do if I let it oxidize. I want to do some more experiments before I pick a patina. I'll definitely try your suggestion with the black patina, it sounds awesome! Thanks so much! =D

I should also add that when i started out, i obsessed over patinas because i thought it would really add, i don't know, artistic integrity to the pieces. eventually i realized no one but glass people really care, and when you take pictures or look at them in sunlight like you're supposed to, you don't notice the color of the solder anyway.

That is so true now that I think about it. I'll definitely keep it in mind next time I'm obsessing over which patina to use. =D Thanks!

Looking forward to seeing the finished product! :blowkiss:

Thanks so much!! (late reply is late)Hopefully I'll post it soon. I'm debating which patina if any I want to use on the solder.
