Fred has been creating patinas for over 30 years! In the early '70s he made gorgeous copper fountains with sinuous cattails and lily pads using patinas while at Knox Campbell Gallery. They were a very popular item resulting in several commissions for installations in homes in the Tucson area. Explore safe methods to color copper and its alloys.These techniques can be used on most non-ferrous metals. Simple buried patinas; submersions;cold & hot applications will be covered. Students must bring (1) foot of 18g or 20g copper sheet to make a set of test pieces for future reference.
