“Gust” applying the patina

 

I continue to do my bronze work every Thursday night in the Foundry Class at Glassell, it is located in the temporary TXRX location in east Houston. Tonight I started applying patina to a second piece in the series. 

 Using a torch I heat the piece.

 My left hand holds the torch and heats the piece starting at the top. With a paint brush in my left hand I apply a chemical to the heated metal.
