New patination technique

Today I played around with new copper patination techniques. I wanted to go as close as I can to orange - red colour, without using a torch (as I don't have such). I spent few days reading about traditional japanese techniques and I fell in love with the idea. Unfortunately I didn't find Rokusho for selling anywhere, so I decided to try a recipe with cupric sulfate. It did work out beautifully. The orange terracotta colour made my heart skip a beat ♥ The piece will be soon ready for sale in The Scratch.
