Verdigris Patinas

I am attracted to all kinds of patinas and old, worn and torn objects in general. I love the effects time and erosion have on things: textures and crusty surfaces. Lately I've been experimenting with verdigris patinas. This turquoise patina has a color that I especially like. The issue about patinas is that they are unpredictable (which I believe is part of the charm). I guess weather, temperature, and humidity play a part on the end result, which may vary, but is always beautiful.
