    That's the best looking forced patina I've ever seen... most of them come out looking artificial, but I like how yours looks very natural. How'd you do it?

    Maxim and EdipisReks, what did you guys use to apply your mustard (or whatever you used) to get that pattern? It looks really cool to me and I may try it out myself.

    I'll have to look through the thread, again, but did you already say what you used for the patina? Thanks for the tip. That patina looks great!

    Edit: found it. So you applied some vinegar first and let it sit before adding mustard? I'm not totally clear on the process of how one does this (newb here :smile1: )
