Creating a Unique Patina Finish: Making of A River Runs Through It

In the video below I outline the method that David Marks teaches in his Chemical Patina classes.  You can find a more detailed written article with a simple web search on Fine Woodworking Magazine’s website.  David Marks published an article several years ago in an issue going into a great amount of detail not only on how to create these finishes but also which chemicals color which metals in a specific way.

The video here is a brief outline of that process.  Also, below is a list of items I used to make these art pieces:

Silver Leaf

Dutch Metal Leaf

Copper Leaf

Gold Leaf

Gilder’s Size

Gilder’s Brush
