There are products available in most craft shops to archive a patina,however, I simply mix a bit of green and a bit of blue in a lot of white andpaint it on. I sometimes follow that with the old india ink in alcohol mix tostreak it.��Bob Santoswww.santmod.webs.com����In a message dated 11/2/2009 10:18:29 A.M.

I like the products by Sophisticated Finishes.�� www.modernoptions.com/�� Michaels sells them.�� It uses actual metal to create the finish, so be careful around electrical parts.�� It also goes on rather thick.�� But used in the right places, it makes a fantastic finish.

(Nope I don't have any connection with the company.�� :)�� )

There are patina mixtures used in stained/leaded glass work that will chemically color metals, including copper and aged copper coloring. I have used them on copper foil projects to blend the copper and the solder colors. Check most any stained glass supplier for them.

��Also (digging up information from my bronze casting days way back when) a very dilute acid mix ( again do a search for bronze sculpture patina) will provide some of the blue/green coloring of aged copper.

Either way, it would probably work the best to apply the patina to the metal before fitting the copper to your model.

The color of weathered copper is called Verdi-Gris. Look for that color paint.

Peter,

I have used a Jade color paint (kind of an aquamarine blue) to

imitate verdigris finishes on everything from stryrene to paper.

Follow the painting with a black wash.
