Your patina method worked very well.Took a bit to figure out common uses for the chemicals and where to procure them.Surprisingly enough several people suggested peeing on it.Your recipe worked so well I decided to sneak in during the night and pee in thier shoes instead.It does not turn leather green by the way.

The method isn't "mine" but a patina that goes back at least 500 years. I am a sculptor and believe me when I say, if it can be tried, I have tried it. Uric Acid (Pee) will put a rich brown patina on copper and bronze, but it requires several months to do so. Peeing on shoes, however will leach out the fat lacquers and rot the leather in less time....LOL. Glad I could help.
