Verdigris

 
Verdigris is the common name for a green pigment obtained through the application of acetic acid to copper plates or the natural patina formed when copper, brass or bronze is weathered and exposed to air or seawater over a period of time

I wanted to share with you a piece I made a while ago utilizing the teachings of Miss Shannon from Missficklemedia. This verdigris color is speaking to me today, I love combining my etching with this particular patina.


You can find this piece in my Etsy shop.

  1. I love this!!! Do you stamp your designs or are they hand drawn? I have been stamping so far but I am thinking I might try some of my own hand drawn designs. Beautiful.
