Hi there....I have purchased your Patina Playtime video and it does not touch upon the patina application to achieve the look with the strips of brass i.e. vertical or horizontal bands. How did you achieve this look, as per your examples?

Thank you!


Hi Jackie,
That's copper tape. It's easy. Just cut a strip and stick down.
