The benefits of adding a torch patina to bronze ...


... can be quite apparent. This has to be the best patina I've achieved on a bronze piece. I managed this by waving my butane torch beneath the piece in selected areas using a slow, circular motion and then quenching the pendant in water. This particular necklace is part of my 'Catch the Wave' series.
