|"Copper and Rust" mm collage by Carol Nelson|
This happened to be Ralph Lauren's Polished Patina series, color Scarlet Verona. It's the top coat, and is meant to go over a base coat. Well, I didn't know that, and just bought the top coat. It has a LOT of what I think is copper powder mixed in the paint, and looks especially good when painted on black paper I later found out.
On this painting, which is on a wood panel, it has a lot of subtle metallic sheen that the camera cannot pick up. The central squared off spiral is hammered copper wire.
