I wish you could have been at the barbeque restaurant in Brazil -- I think you would have really enjoyed it

 No, the bulls from my father's farm are "just for beef" -- this is the only kind of bull I like, despite the fact I'm from Pamplona  ;-)

Steam Punk Patina

I sent the cow/horse poop suggestion to my son (potential steam punker) and wife (former (perhaps perpetually) farm girl).  My wife provided this response:

Fast-tracking patina for
brass:  (from Mom)

Left on its own without any intervention, unlacquered brass will begin to
darken in about a month and will continue to take on a deeper patina with age
and use.  (Look up the next time you are seated at our dining room
table.)  To accelerate this process, placing the items in HOT water will
speed up the oxidation.  Another trick is to place an open can of
traditional latex paint next to the unlacquered brass item in an enclosed area
for at least 24 hours.  The fumes from the paint will quicken the patination
process.


And, by the way, BRASS IS BACK, in a big way.  The appetite for nickel and
chrome is at the saturation point.  Just ask Martha Stewart.

javi

my father at his bulls farm!!

As i recall, you live in Pamplona. And your father raises bulls. Is it too much of a leap to ask if your father raises the bulls for Pamplona's famous event?

@Wnderer: I think the 'tasty' you are looking for might be better achieved by etching a border design before applying a patina.

Like the Steampunk Synthesizer below you mean? I agree -- it looks awesome -- if only I had the skill...
