silver patina on bronze 

Patinas are typically formed by chemical reactions on the surface of metals. Sculptural patinas are made by mixing chemicals and applying them to the surface, rather than waiting for nature to take its course.

Most of patinas are achieved by brushing chemical solutions onto the surface of the bronze while heating that surface with an oxyacetylene torch. Others are formed over several days by burying the piece in wood chips soaked with other patina chemicals. Often, the final patina is a result of two or more different patinas layered one over another.  

Unlike conventional patinas, silver patina is costly and requires special protective wear (in addition to eye and face protection, long sleeves and particular gloves) as the hot patina actively splatters and permanently damage and discolours skin and fingernails.

Nitrate toxicosis in humans can occur through enterohepatic metabolism of nitrate to ammonia, with nitrite being an intermediate. Nitrites oxidize the iron atoms in hemoglobin from ferrous iron (2+) to ferric iron (3+), rendering it unable to carry oxygen. This process can lead to generalized lack of oxygen in organ tissue and a dangerous condition called methemoglobinemia.Humans are vulnerable to methemoglobinemia due to nitrate metabolizing triglycerides present at higher concentrations than at other stages of development.

Some can be more susceptible to the effects of nitrate than others. The Nitrate ion is a polyatomic ion with the molecular formula NO−3 and a molecular mass of 62.0049 g/mol. It is the conjugate base of nitric acid, consisting of one central nitrogen atom surrounded by three identical oxygen atoms in a trigonal planar arrangement.

The nitrate ion carries a formal charge of negative one, where each oxygen carries a −2⁄3 charge whereas the nitrogen carries a +1 charge, and is commonly used as an example of resonance.

The Silver patina is a ‘solution of silver nitrate’ applied to bronze using the ‘torch technique’, care must be taken subsequently to bring up the desired effect. Flakes of silver nitrate and stir to dissolve then apply while heating the metal till steams off as the patina is brushed on. Patterns can be made with brushstrokes.

Silver patina colour variation (from dark gunmetal depths to brighter silvers) is not entirely controllable and requires specialised knowledge as well as the extensive expertise.

The grey and white effects of silver can be rinse off, wearing rubber gloves (to keep the residue off hands) when the surface is first cooled. Once it is rinsed and completely dry, it can be waxed. Once the wax is dry, the surface can be buffed to produce a shiny silver or silver-grey colour, sometimes dramatically different from the un-buffed look.

When the patina dries it is mostly a dull, variegated grey-white, with hits of green and occasional shiny silver flecks. The loose white can be gently rinse away, then wax is applied to the surface, finally (when the wax is well hardened) the sculpture can be buff it on a soft brass brush wheel to bring up a cloudy mottled silver-grey with a medium-high gloss. Much of the white is powdery, however, and must be fixed with a spray fixative if the matte grey-white effect is to be kept; otherwise, the white powder will smudge with the application of the protective ‘wax coating’. When the matte effect is preserved then the patina is called Grey.

If a thin foil of silver is applied onto the object then the electro-plating process is used to apply a thin layer of gold to a metal surface. A method of coating a metal object with silver by passing an electric current from a block of pure silver to the article to be plated through a solution of cyanide and silver salts. Electro-plated Nickel Silver, with a nickel based alloy being the base metal to be plated.

Lenore BOYD father, Guy Martin à Beckett BOYD (12 June 1923 – 26 April 1988) was an Australian sculptor born in Murrumbeena, Victoria, he was a member of the famous BOYD artistic dynasty, and brother of painters Arthur BOYD and David BOYD. Guy was a potter and figurative sculptor noted for his ability to capture the fluidity and sensuality of the female form. He was also active in environmental and other causes, including the damming of Tasmania's Franklin River and the Lindy Chamberlain affair. Initially Guy BOYD was a potter, establishing both Martin BOYD Pottery and later Guy BOYD Pottery. These studios produced a wide range of modernist objects from house-wares to decorative pieces which enjoyed strong commercial success. Iconic Australian imagery, particularly flora and indigenous motifs, feature heavily. This period of work is also stepped in the 'atomic age' aesthetics of the 1950s and early 1960s with a familiar color palate and shapes that hold strong Echos of Eames and others. Guy BOYD turned away from this commercial work and to a full-time career in sculpture in 1965. His commissions include sculptures in both Melbourne and Sydney's international airports, Caulfield town hall, the Commonwealth Bank and has pieces in the National Gallery, Melbourne. He has had exhibitions of his work in Australia, England, Canada and the US. He also won the Churchill Fellowship to study art overseas in 1968 and was appointed the Art Advisor to Deakin University in 1988. 'Guy BOYD' written by Anne Von Bertouch and Patrick Hutchins was published by Lansdowne Press in 1976. Guy BOYD was Australian Co-ordinator of 'Save Lindy Chamberlain' and wrote the book 'Justice in Jeopardy' in her defence. He was President of the Brighton Foreshore Protection Committee, which he founded with a plaque commemorating his achievements in preserving the Brighton Foreshore erected on the beach at Brighton, Victoria, Melbourne. He was President of the Port Phillip Protection Society and was arrested campaigning against the damming of the Franklin River in Tasmania. He migrated to Canada with his wife and four younger children, settling in Toronto in 1975, but returned to live in Australia five years later. Died 26 April 1988

Bathsheba

Bathsheba

  • Bathsheba was a daughter of Eliam, one of David's "thirty" (2 Sam. 23:34; cf 1 Chr. 3:5) thus Bathsheba was from David's own tribe and the granddaughter of one of David's closest advisors.

  • Eliam was the son of Ahitophel, one of David's chief advisors. Ahitophel was from Giloh (Josh. 15:51;cf 2 Sam. 15:12), a city of Judah, (2 Sam.15:12).

  • Bathsheba was the mother of Solomon, who succeeded David as king, making her the Queen Mother.
