patina on bronse
Posted by Dan Leonhardt on September 15, 1998 at 11:41:08:
I'm a goldsmith by trade so if someone can offer any suggestions I'd appreciate your help.
I have a good customer who brought a bronse pot with a "beheaded" cast dragon. It was lead soldered on so I took a chance and risked the patina to re-solder it. All went fine except now I have a "bald" spot on the head. What must I use to re-patina this spot? It still is brown in color--just a little lighter now.
Thanks for any suggestions.
