  1. Howdy all, Here are some (hopefully not sideways!) photos of the bed frame that I have been working on for the attic bedroom of my Orchid (Sweet Cypress Cottage). I built it from scratch, from my own improvised design. I decided to go for a heavy patina look; I love verdigris what can I say! This is the first coat of simulated patina (mixed up my own batch of acrylic paints for the occasion). It needs a few more coats (not to mention a mattress and frills!); I will be adjusting shades as I dapple on layers for a textured, aged look. I'd like some opinions on this: the green chair to the right (which, I know, needs some dirtying up/aging) is from an HoM kit. I decided to paint and add brass findings instead of staining. I'm wondering, does the olive tone throw off the patina color (as in, make it seem too blue)? I'm also wondering: do you think these two pieces should be in the same room? I know the camera plays tricks, but I'm a little worried about the weird size relationship between them. Anyone have thoughts or opinions? Happy to hear them!

    From the album: Micro Minis

    I've been working on aging the copper roof on this tiny cabin. The vinegar and Q-tip routine was getting me almost nowhere. It's impossible to get enough solution on the house at one time because it's so small, and large water drops look like, well, "large" water drops, LOL! So my hubby ground some sea salt to a powder for me and mixed it into a vinegar paste. This works better so far because it clings to the surface and holds more volume of the solution on the copper. You can see a green cast starting to come up. I'll probably have to do this a couple of times to get a satisfactory effect.

    Day 2, after second application of solution. The green areas are intensified and the entire roof is "aged." I think I'll look at it awhile before doing any more. On this side the image is better. I like the streaking that has occurred.

    I realized belatedly that I'd failed to take many photos of applying the copper tape to the roof. It's tricksy stuff and somewhat difficult to handle, but if it doesn't get away from you and turn into a coil of sticky copper flypaper, it's really fast to apply. The roof was a gleaming copper beauty when I was finished, but Bwahaha, just wait!

    So this is the first go at aging the copper roof using vinegar to get the verdigris patina. I got a little ahead of myself and decided to wipe the roof down with white vinegar to take off the fingerprints before applying the verdigris mix (white vinegar, salt, and egg white). Of course, the vinegar started aging the roof without the mix. I then applied my recipe and draped it under clear plastic. In just a short time the green was starting to form!

    This close up of the roof shows the start of the verdigris patina forming along the seams (which is what I was trying to achieve, so yeah me!). It also has a build up forming in the gully between the roofs. I worked to get that streaked look. It's getting a second treatment tonight.
