I am working on hand carving and gilding frames and need some advice. I'm ok at the gilding and carving but would like to know how to achieve that soft patina found on most plein air frames. Would anyone share their formulas with me? I've used raw umber mixed thinned with shellac but it's not exactly what I'd like to get, any help and/or tips would be appreciated.
