I do not like the way my piece looks at all. It is mainly my fault as I forgot about the challenge and did not get the patina colorings ordered way ahead of time. The colors I chose were Vintaj's Rusted Hardware. You can see the Cinnabar and Rust in the center of the piece. I used the Clay on the letters that are on the side of the compass. Not very visible, are they?
I used the Lapis and Emerald colors that were from the Faded Pickup color selection on some of the markings between the letters. I used the Topaz color on top of the Clay I had used before on the letters. At least now you can see the letters.
There is one more mark that I need to color and then I should be ready to make something if I don't scrap the whole thing and start over.
The first two colors went on so easily and visibly, that I thought this would be very easy to do. Proved me wrong. As soon as I decide what I want to do, I will be posting it. I hate to give up because I would really like to patina some findings. I probably need to be a little more patient.
