Thank you guys Thumbs Up I really enjoyed the whole thing, but particularly the patina bit.
I have some limited knowledge now of the timings, what substances do what and produce what colours and also shades of those colours. It’s a funny business as whilst things look dark and dismal sometimes inside the ammonia chamber, that isn’t the whole story, even removing it from the chamber was weird as it evaporated vapour like a ghost!
I have a bit of copper pipe in there now for 24 hours, which for 2 weeks has been sat in miracle grow (and didn’t do much other than form a blue crust) but it’s alive now!
Kinda sums the whole process up ‘alive’ , it basically is and you have to really keep an eye on it because it changes quite rapidly and in spurts.
I am going to continue my experimenting, but with different salty solutions, the most obvious of which since I live a mile from the ocean is sea water.
Time also plays a big role, though I love it’s present colours, as it’s what I was aiming for – I must admit the very first ‘good’ patina shot I did looked lovely in a completely different way, the lovely gold and copper mix, part of me wishes I’d pulled it out then. I believe the copper being pulled out is what eventually causes the blue’s, which is altered with different times etc.

I have to say “ I did not see that one coming !! “. This is an amazing light you have made G0OSE Shocked Thumbs Up
Your last pic above reminds me of a Rocket taking off. I can tell from your pics that you put a lot of time and thought into it.
I really like your new ideas for the finish, Great Job Thumbs Up I cannot stop looking over your pics. Cool

I am not going to comment on it any more YuvalS, sorry. Smile
It was a hard decision but one that had to be made, unless something changes consider it not counted.

After some lengthy conversations, I am back in the compo – I apologise for any bad feeling that may have been caused. I am not sorry for my opinion on it though.
