This massive and beautiful hardback book by Matthew Runfola will provide the reader with everything needed to understand and create using patina. Why do I call it an encyclopedia? Is it because it encompasses all metals which can be treated with patina? Is it because it includes every manner and technique for using the patina effects which one can create? Is it because it discusses fully all of the situations which one could encounter when using patina, and what to look for and look out for? Yes. Perhaps, as well, it is because it discusses in depth what is required for the reader's workspace . It has it ALL!The term encyclopedia, the way I am choosing to use it here, means that this book, PATINA, is a compendium and can be used as a source book, because it contains so much knowledge about the subject and comes at it in so many ways.This sort of book, when done well, as this book is, is very useful as a textbook as well as a "go to" volume for inspiration.I have not mentioned the photography yet. PATINA has a beautiful display of handsome, clear, sharpphotos which will expound further upon the subject visually, and expand your understanding of why you want to learn how to patinate.Many artists are represented in PATINA. Their finished pieces light up the pages of this amazing book.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.
