Poseidon Neptune bronze door knocker

The Poseidon Neptune bronze door knocker was completed using the following patinas “colors”:

• Liver of Sulphur

• Ferric Nitrate

A scrubbing pad was also used to rub the bronze in order to create the highlights.

The spray bottle with distilled water was used to wash and dilute the chemicals.

A propane torch is used to heat the metal to over 200 degree fahrenheit. The hotter the metal, the quicker chemical reaction one gets. It is always wise to start with a somewhat diluted solution and work your way to a darker patina.

The technique should be to get an even distribution of heat throughout the bronze.

After the patina application, wax was applied with a brush and rag. The wax serves as a sealer.  The wax also gives the patina a gloss.
