For quite some time, I’ve been buying and stashing brass animals in a cupboard at home, waiting for the day that I had enough to send off to the foundry. No, not to melt down for pocket money! I was dreaming of turning them black.
While I have nothing against a brass animal, I prefer less shiny objects, so I’ve had the foundry oxidise them, turning their shiny surface a heavy matt black, almost like cast iron, but with just a hint of gold beneath.
I’m crazy about the way they turned out! Take a look at these Before & After pics, and you’ll certainly agree that they’re much better this way. (And PS: No More Polishing Required!)
Find my Black Gold animals for sale in the Skinny laMinx shop at 201 Bree Street, Cape Town.
