Intro
Patina and in particular metal coloring is one of my great passions. During my training as a foundry technologist and art-caster, I had the opportunity to delve deeper into chemical metal coloring.
Many metals have the wonderful property of being extremely reactive. In -particular, copper alloys such as bronze or brass oxidize very differently depending on the circumstances in the environment. Moisture, heat, chemical components in the air, etc. can affect this oxidation, which is also commonly referred to as patina. In the workshop, we follow in the footsteps of the alchemists, experiment with recipes and techniques that are centuries old, and try out the latest DIY YouTube patination instructions that are circulating. True to the motto: You never lose. Either you win or learn.


Patina and in particular metal coloring is one of my great passions. During my training as a foundry technologist and art-caster, I had the opportunity to delve deeper into chemical metal coloring. The fascination for this topic has remained and the focus in my own work has increasingly shifted to the area of natural patina development in recent years.
