more felt

I told you there'd be some more of Sharron Parker's work ... this is one of my very favorites, and in its square form, it looks flatter and less like an escaped dressing gown than this ... Called Copper Traces II, it's one of a set of eight and it looks like the copper carbonate that forms on top of copper as it oxidises, thus turning it an inimitable blue-green that, yes, is the patina-color of the heading at the top of this blog.  To turn copper green quicker than naturally happens?  Well, you could paint it with dilute sulphuric acid if you had some to hand, but if not, Miracle Grow and water works transformational wonders.  That way, you can get your copper to look just like deeply dyed felt ...
