Recreating Patina on another sample board



I've had another one of those requests! 

Some of you may remember I had a prospective pupil a while ago, asking whether she would be able to obtain a certain finish on a piece of furniture, after doing the course. I set her mind at ease by making up a sample and blogging about it here.

About a week ago I received this image and more or less the same question accompanying it. 






At first I replied with a "Yes, of course ...", but then I thought I might as well go all the way and make up a sample to prove my point.





So, again I set to work. I added 2 short lengths of timber moulding to a piece of board and stained it with my homemade wood stain. 




After that I mixed 4 different colours of casein paint, using the recipe from our online course, and applied them in such a way that they would be easily distressed after they had dried. To add extra depth and warmth to the colours, I finished it with an oil glaze that I made myself and of which the recipe and instruction are available in Module 1 of  the FARRAGOZ Online Course.




This is what it finally looked like.




Close enough? What do you think?
