Finished the bronze gate patina and oil sealant and the shop surprised me with pizza, beer and cupcakes for #37. #austin #fabrication #bronze #beerandcupcakes #birthday

First coat of patina was cold applied potash mix. Second coat is heat activated ferric nitrate. Fun stuff we picked up from local OG bronze master, Jim Thomas, who was kind enough to pass along some of his age old finishing techniques. @miroriveraarch #austin #architecture #fabrication #finishing #flamethrower #blowtorch
