Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I am totally blown away! ... This is one book that I will read cover to cover. ANYONE interested in adding color to their jewelry should own this. I learned so much that I cannot wait to try. I know of no university classes that even come close to delving into the subject with such intensity. Not only are the examples of finished jewelry inspiring, the entire book is well organized and the photos are clear and beautifully presented. This book should be in every jewelry artists library." --Lexi Erickson, President, Wubbers University

"This is a serious serious book! Matthew Runfola has written what might well become the bible of Patina, which details over 300 patination recipes for all different types of metal (steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, bronze, silver, and aluminum). Packed with charts and formulas that will make your decision-making process easier, the book is arranged with information up front, followed by a directory of samples, and finishing with the recipes used to create those samples." --Beading Arts

"This book contains many samples and ideas for jewelry pieces and other metal working projects. Explanations are clear and concise. There is an excellent section on general techniques which can help with patterns for self-created projects. It offers a broad array of options for patina effects on metal jewelry and I was very pleased." --Crafter's Corner

"The author, Matthew Runfola, knows everything about his subject. He includes explanations of exactly why the properties of each kind of surface you treat will change how the patina you use appears. This is as distinctly unique and useful as being able to understand the repeatable effects of a science experiment." --Pretty Kitty Dog Moon Jewelry
