I am using natural and synthetic products like colors, pigments, oils, glues, canvases,
linen, wood, papers, newspapers and lacquers depending on the art project.
Unfortunately, I am unable to guarantee a preserved and ageless look forever. Art works
might develop over time:
Patina is the Character of an Art Work acquired over time
A thin surface layer that develops on objects like antiques, wood, textiles, leather, stone and metals
through time due to the reaction to oxygen and light in the environment altering the original color and appearance.
Objects made of brass, copper and bronze have a blue-green patina also known as verdigris.
Patinas can provide a protective covering to materials that would otherwise be damaged by corrosion
or weathering. They may also be aesthetically appealing.
The word patina comes from the Italian patina (shallow layer of deposit on a surface) derived from
the Latin patina (pan, shallow dish). Figuratively, patina can refer to any fading, darkening, or
other signs of age, which are felt to be natural or unavoidable (or both).
The chemical process by which a patina forms or is deliberately induced is called patination,
and a work of art coated by a patina is said to be patinated.
In the case of antiques, a range of views are held on the value of patination and its replacement
if damaged, known as re-patination.
Preserving a piece's look and character is important and removal or reduction may
dramatically reduce its value.
The artworks are sold “as is” without any representations or warranties, express or implied.
I make no representations or warranties in relation to these artworks or the products and
materials used, or preserving ageless looks of the artworks.
