Patina Perfection

Out one Saturday in a neighborhood yard sale, my partner in crime Ellen Mosher eyed a pair of brass over the top ornate marbled based lamps.... well lets just say we could see why they weren't selling.  But with a quick side glance at one another, she scooped them up for a song.  Ellen's background in copper work has taught her how to bring aged patinas to varous metals and these babies didnt know what was about to hit them.  I'm in love with the results .... an aged bronze with hints of copper and rust.  Patina perfection!

The before and in the early stage of rework


The after .... some added bling, and bye-bye marble


So cool!!
