Mad Group Art Project: May 4
Today’s Mad Group Art word is: Patina.
It may be a new vocabulary word for you (not that it was for me. I didn’t look it up. I knew this word forever… I mean, I did look it up, but only so that I could copy and paste from
the dictionary Wikipedia because writing out the whole definition would have been tedious. But I know ALL the words. So don’t think I didn’t know “patina”) so I got you a definition:
Patina (/ˈpætɨnə/ or /pəˈtiːnə/) is a tarnish that forms on the surface of bronze and similar metals (produced by oxidation or other chemical processes); a sheen on woodenfurniture produced by age, wear, and polishing; or any such acquired change of a surface through age and exposure. On metal, patina is a coating of various chemical compounds such as oxides or carbonates formed on the surface during exposure to the elements (weathering). Patina also refers to accumulated changes in surface texture and colour that result from normal use of an object such as a coin or a piece of furniture over time.
