Patina’s and Sculpt Nouveau

Wow, I have lots to try. Went to Sculpt Nouveau, Ron Young’s shop, for patinas. Patina’s are the coatings put onto bronze and other metals. Often used to make the metal’s appear old, they also allow an artist to add color into the metal sculptures. And Ron Young is THE EXPERT acknowledged world wide for Patina’s. I’m getting closer to finishing a few pieces and am very inspired after the aluminum pour last weekend. At Sculpt Nouveau (website link provided), they gave me an incredible kit for starting. Even included a metal coating so I can turn a piece of wood into something that looks like metal. It’s going to take some work to try out the different waxes, patina’s, and paints in this kit. I”m excited. Thank you Sculpt Nouveau.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.

    1. Bill,
      Glad you found this interesting. I’ll post some pictures in a week or two on how the patina’s came out. Will be working with iron, bronze, aluminum, and even a piece of wood. Can’t wait for the weekend when I get to play with these new toys.
