Patinating the Bronzes

Today I started to colour the bronzes. First of all I am applying a black ground using a solution of Potassium Poly-sulphide (Liver of Sulphur). Over this I will apply Copper Nitrate the resulting patina will be a traditional green on black.
Heating the bronze and dabbing on the solution.
A rick black patina.
