About me

I have over 20 years of experience and success in the creation of high quality artwork designed to withstand the rigours of the public space. Works have been in 3 dimensions, as well as ground and wall based relief. Over the years I have made new works for town centres, community gardens, public recreation grounds, local authority buildings, housing association developments as well as libraries, hospitals and health centres.

Patinating the Bronzes

Today I started to colour the bronzes. First of all I am applying a black ground using a solution of Potassium Poly-sulphide (Liver of Sulphur). Over this I will apply Copper Nitrate the resulting patina will be a traditional green on black.
Heating the bronze and dabbing on the solution.
A rick black patina.
