First time taking copper and adding patina to it. Started out with a clean sheet – well almost clean.
Used a lemon and a bit of salt to clean the top. Surprising how shiny it got.
Then took a salt and vinegar mixture and brushed it on.
Left it overnight – and oh my, it got green. Wound up with a thick spidery coating on it. Within 48 hours of applying the salt/vinegar solution it was fairly well dry.
Took it outside and washed it off with water to stop the reaction and get a look at it. Got it to the last pic within 48 hours.
It continues to patina and change just a bit, but have not sealed it yet. Letting it run its natural course now for a bit longer until the client says it’s gotten to where they want it to be.
